A phenomenological model is proposed for cyclic plasticity based on the concept of distributed elements, which is capable of reflecting microstructural behavior of real materials under multiaxial cyclic loading conditions. By investigating the detailed behavior of the model, various important phenomena and effects of materials in cyclic plasticity can be elucidated. Generalization of the model is also done to include cyclic hardening effects. A thorough understanding of these complicated response mechanisms and material properties provides useful insight and guidelines for validating analytical models and for performing experimental studies in the related areas of cyclic plasticity.
