Cyclic Plasticity: Modeling Based on Nonhardening Region

Conference paper


The nonhardening region in plastic strain space enables us to describe one of the important features in cyclic plasticity, i.e., dependence of cyclic hardening on the strain range. Predictions obtained by introducing this region are presented for the cyclic plastic behaviour of austenitic stainless steels under strain cycling, stress cycling, and thermomechanical cycling.
