    Abstract

    The cyclic stress-strain response of a wide range of binary, ternary, and complex commercial and experimental-commercial aluminum alloys has been investigated. In addition to constant-amplitude tests, incremental, block, random loading tests, and other specialized tests have been used in assessing cyclic response. The conditions under which cyclic hardening or softening occur have been elucidated, and general conclusions have been drawn about cyclic response in aluminum alloys.
