Finite Plastic Deformation For Metals Under Torsion

Wen Fung Pan, Han C. Wu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Making use of the concept of plastic spin, endochronic theory is applied to describe the torsional deformation in the finite strain range. Deformation of tubular specimens of 70:30 brass, Ni-200 and Al-1100 are discussed. Special attention is given to torsion of tubular specimens with constrained and unconstrained ends. In the finite strain range, axial stress or elongation may be observed in addition to the shear stress and strain, depending on the end condition of the tube.
