Abstract

This paper extends our recent work to examine the feasibility and applicability of the endochronic theory of anisotropic hardening rule to more complex loading cases. The result shows that the Bauschinger effect can be predicted quantitatively well by the theory. Also, the theory is mathematically proven to be capable of describing cyclically stabilized behavior which is experimentally observed in most metallic materials. In addition, the phenomenon of experimental neutral loading is qualitatively examined well by the theory. Determination of the subsequent yield surface which is of anisotropic behavior is theoretically described. Through this investigation, the results have reflected that extension of the theory to deal with plastic behavior of more complex cases is quite feasible and needs further study supported by the experiments concerning the behavior of yield surface in deformation process.
