The endochronic theory of viscoplasticity developed previously by the author is used to give quantitative analytical predictions on the mechanical response of aluminum and copper under conditions of complex strain histories. One single constitutive equation describes with remarkable accuracy and ease of calculation diverse phenomena, such as cross-hardening, loading and unloading loops, cyclic hardening as well as behavior in tension in the presence of a shearing stress, which have been observed experimentally by four different authors.
