Comparison Of Plastic Stress-Strain Material Properties As Determined From Conventional Experiments, Wen Mo Chen

Masters Theses

"In problems of engineering design, it is usually assumed that the stress-strain diagrams of a given material, as obtained from different loading conditions, are the same. In fact, by using the classical theory of plasticity, it can be shown that, with an appropriate selection of stress and strain related parameters, the diagrams should coincide.

Three different materials - magnesium, aluminum and steel, have been tested under tension, compression, torsion and bending loads. Stress-strain diagrams were constructed from these observations. This thesis presents an analysis of the relative agreement between the theoretical and experimental results of these materials"--Abstract, page i.
