Peculiarities of Irreversible Straining in Step-Wise Loading, Reverse and Inverse Creep

  • Andrew Rusinko


The paper is concerned with the generalization of synthetic theory to the modeling of phenomena such as the Bauschinger negative effect, creep delay, reverse and inverse creep. Detailed calculations of plastic/creep strains are accompanied with the construction of loading surfaces that enhance the understanding of the processes studied. The calculated results show satisfactory agreement with experiments.

Key words
