A Note on the Measurement of Proportional Limit Under Multiaxial Stresses



Theoretical definitions of the multiaxial plastic flow surface are exact; however, ambiguities arise in the experimental measurement. A new method for measuring the multiaxial flow surface based on maximum elastic stress rate is proposed which eliminates these ambiguities. It is applied to biaxial yielding.
