Abstract

Within the last ten years there has been much interest in the field of elasto-plastic behavior of engineering materials. Hie recent popularity of the low-cost light-weight plastically designed structures has added a great deal of impetus to this interest. This thesis deals with one of the aspects of elasto-plastic behavior, namely, the distribution of the residual stresses in a simple member which has been plastically deformed in tension and/or compression,. In particular, an attempt has been made to relate these residual stresses to the well-known but little understood Bauschinger effect.
