Abstract : The report establishes the monotonic and steady-state cyclic stress-strain properties for smooth, uniaxially-loaded specimens of A36 steel. Transient characteristics of cyclic hardening and softening and cyclic relaxation of mean stress are investigated. Deflection versus load and strain versus load are reported for a simple beam subjected to three-point bending. Six computer programs are included. These programs were developed to fit specific needs of the finite element program for determining energy dissipation in dynamically loaded structures. (Author)
