    Abstract

    A model employing a modified Mroz kinematic hardening rule with a Tresca yield surface is derived for a state of plane stress, combining together successful attributes of previous nonproportional incremental plasticity theories. Results from several nonproportional tests on oxygen-free high-conductivity copper are compared with computer predictions. Solution sensitivity to the particular cyclic stress-stain curve used, its piecewise linearization for the Mroz-type hardening rule, and the magnitude of the effective strain increment in the analysis is studied. A trade-off between the number of surfaces used in the Mroz-type rule and the effective strain increment size is observed for optimum solution with respect to convergence and speed.
