Abstract : The biaxial testing device described herein is capable of obtaining yield points in any quadrant of the two-dimensional stress space. Several yield theoreis are compared with experimental results in the compression quadrnat for HY-80 steel. A deformation-type flow theory is used in conjunction with this apparatus to compare theoretical and experimental post-yielding stresses. Very good agreement was obtained between measured and calculated values. (Author)
