CYCLIC MECHANICAL TESTS AND AN APPROPRIATE ANALYTICAL STRESS-STRAIN MODEL FOR A36 STEEL

This report establishes the monotonic and steady-state cyclic stress-strain properties for smooth, uniaxilly-loaded specimens of A36 steel. Transient characteristics of cyclic hardening and softening and cyclic relaxation of mean stress are investigated. Deflection versus load and strain versus load are reported for a simple beam subjected to three-point bending. Six computer programs are included. These programs were developed to fit specific needs of the finite element program for determining energy dissipation in dynamically loaded structures.
