Abstract:

The way in which the mechanical properties of metals and alloys depend on the stress state is analyzed. When critical deformation conditions are reached, an S-shaped function describes the material behavior. The regularity of this S-shaped response of the mechanical properties serves as a basis for the prediction of the mechanical properties of materials under various load conditions. Examples are given of studies on iron and steel.
