A general anisotropic yield criterion using bounds and a transformation weighting tensor. (English) Zbl 0792.73029

A general expression for the yield surface of polycrystalline materials is developed. The proposed yield surface can describe both isotropic and anisotropic materials. The isotropic surface can be reduced to either the Tresca or von Mises surface if appropriate, or can be used to capture the yield behavior of materials (e.g. aluminum) which do not fall into either category. Anisotropy can be described by introducing a set of irreducible tensorial state variables. The introduced linear transformation is capable of describing different anisotropic states, including the most general anisotropy (triclinic) as opposed to existing criteria which describe only orthotropic materials. Also, it can successfully describe the variation of the plastic strain ratio (\(R\)-ratio), where polycrystalline plasticity models usually fail.
