J. Pressure Vessel Technol 139(4), 041404 (Apr 21, 2017) (6 pages) Paper No: PVT-16-1106; doi: 10.1115/1.4036426 History: Received July 07, 2016; Revised March 31, 2017

The paper addresses the Bauschinger effect under complex stress state in materials with deformation-induced anisotropy whose strain hardening is described by the isotropic–kinematic (translational) type hardening hypothesis. The Bauschinger effect is analyzed using the model based on the yield surface conception and graphical–analytical method of construction of constitutive equations under complex loading. As an example, cylindrical pressure vessels with closed and open ends subjected to autofrettage are considered. The tension–compression Bauschinger effect in the axial and hoop directions as well as the Bauschinger effect under reversed torsion with respect to the longitudinal axis is determined. The role of such factors as the level of prestraining under autofrettage, relation between isotropic and kinematic components of the strain hardening, and chemical composition of the material is analyzed. The results obtained are presented in the form of plots.
