Abstract

"A computer program has been developed to study the behavior of plane stress structures under cyclic loading. Such phenomena as thermal ratcheting, alternate plasticity, shake-down and the Bauschinger effect may be considered. The incremental theory of plasticity has been used. The program deals with realistic conditions such as nonlinear strain hardening, nonlinear temperature distribution and occurrence of both compressive and tensile plastic flow. The concept of an average material property has been used. Thermal ratcheting of a beam subjected to a constant bending moment and a temperature cycle has been studied in detail. The analysis shows analytically that the rate of plastic strain growth reduces with an increase in the number of loading cycles. Applications of the computer program have been discussed. Further, the thermal ratcheting of a two bar model has been discussed considering the simplifying assumptions of linear strain hardening and the absence of compressive plastic flow"--Abstract, page ii.
