Stress integration method for a nonlinear kinematic/isotropic hardening model and its characterization based on polycrystal plasticity (2009)
Journal Article
Cardoso, R. P., & Yoon, J. W. (2009). Stress integration method for a nonlinear kinematic/isotropic hardening model and its characterization based on polycrystal plasticity. International Journal of Plasticity, 25(9), 1684-1710. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijplas.2008.09.007

Sheet metal forming processes generally involve non-proportional strain paths including springback, leading to the Bauschinger effect, transient hardening, and permanent softening behavior, that can be possibly modeled by kinematic hardening laws. In... Read More about Stress integration method for a nonlinear kinematic/isotropic hardening model and its characterization based on polycrystal plasticity.
