Strain hardening under non-proportional loading in polycrystalline aluminum alloys

In the paper it is postulated that the so-called common slip domains influence the character
of the strain hardening phenomena for complex loading paths. The slip domains were evaluated
on the basis of the Batdorf–Budiansky slip theory of plasticity. Evolution of a yield surface
for different non-proportional tension-torsion loading paths was determined for PA4 aluminum
alloy and the hypothesis that the strain hardening depends on the development of the common
slip domains was shown to be justified.
