Abstract : Critical diameter ratios for reverse yielding of thick-walled cylinders are calculated, taking experimentally determined values of the Bauschinger Effect into account. The tangential residual stresses at the inside surface of the tube are then calculated based on the critical diameter ratios. It is shown that the theoretical residual stresses are reduced by 54 and 38 percent, based on the 0.1 and 0.2 percent offset yield strengths used in determining the Bauschinger Effect parameters for the high-strength, low-alloy steel used as an example for this study.
