A Generalized Anisotropic Hardening Rule Based on the Mroz Multi-Yield-Surface Model and Various Classical Yield Functions
In this paper, a generalized anisotropic hardening rule based on the Mroz multi-yield-surface model is derived. The evolution equation for the active yield surface is obtained by considering the continuous expansion of the active yield surface during the unloading/reloading process. The incremental constitutive relation based on the associated flow rule is then derived for a general yield function. Detailed incremental constitutive relations for materials based on the Mises yield function, the Hill quadratic anisotropic yield function and the Drucker-Prager yield function are derived as the special cases. The closed-form solutions for one-dimensional stress-plastic strain curves are plotted for materials under cyclic loading conditions based on the three yield functions.
