plasticity of a metal, complex loading, stress tensor, stress deviator, Bauschinger effect, loading history


A calculating apparatus has been developed to help evaluate the stress-strain state in the plastic forming processes accompanied by a complex loading in which the Bauschinger effect can be manifested. The developed methods are based on the phenomenological approach in which a material map is devised in the form of flow curves, Bauschinger curves, a function j characterizing the hereditary influence of the loading history, plasticity diagrams, and limiting strain surfaces. To evaluate the plasticity resource used, taking into account the non-monotonicity of loading, the relations for determining the main components of the guiding strain-rate tensor were obtained, which made it possible to simplify the calculation of the components of the damage tensor. With the help of the developed calculating apparatus, the applied plasticity resource was evaluated in the process of radial extrusion with the contour sag, which allowed setting the limiting parameters of the shaping. Also, as a result of the research, an increase in the plasticity of the metal was established by selecting rational loading paths in the space of the dimensionless coordinates h, ms, and eu. For example, in the process of radial extrusion with the contour sag due to a change in the nature of the deformation, it was possible to obtain a flange diameter of 44 mm, with the initial diameter of the cylindrical workpiece being 20 mm. The results obtained are important because in most cases the processes of metal pressure treatment are accompanied by non-monotonic deformation
