Linear elastic solution of an axisymmetric boundary value problem is used as a basis to generate its inelastic solution. This method treats the material parameters as field variables. Their distribution is obtained as a part of solution in an iterative manner. Two schemes of updating material parameters are discussed and compared. A procedure for calculation of residual stress field is presented. Application of the method to autofrettage is presented. Residual stress calculation based on actual material curve, isotropic and kinematic hardening models, and variable Bauschinger effect factor (BEF) is carried out. It is concluded that consideration of dependency of BEF on plastic strain makes significant changes to residual hoop stress near the bore for low-level autofrettage. However, this dependency is insignificant for high-level autofrettage. Results obtained here are shown to be in good agreement with experimental and finite element results.
