The Chaboche isotropic-kinematic hardening (CIKH) model provides a versatile and realistic description of the material stress–strain behavior under generic multiaxial cyclic loadings.

One linear and two non-linear backstress components of the kinematic hardening model are introduced, although the analytical equations developed can be used to refine the model further, with more components. Two stabilized cycles are required to identify the main kinematic parameters. New analytical expressions for asymptotic ratcheting rates in uniaxial tests are developed and then used to tune the dynamics of the slightly non-linear (hence, slowest) backstress component. After obtaining the kinematic parameters, isotropic hardening laws can also be identified, by considering the evolution of the extreme points of the strain-controlled cycles before stabilization. Practical demonstrations of the procedure are provided by experimental tests carried out on a 7075-T6 aluminum alloy, 42CrMo4+QT steel, and a high-silicon ferritic ductile cast iron. An accurate reproduction of the material behavior is achieved, at a negligible computational cost.

Abstract

The Chaboche isotropic-kinematic hardening (CIKH) model provides a versatile and realistic description of the material stress–strain behavior under generic multiaxial cyclic loadings. However, identifying the backstress parameters is challenging, and can be formulated as an optimization problem using different approaches. Instead of a computationally expensive pointwise search, in this paper the global properties of the cyclic curves are fitted to the experimental data. The conditions introduced are the hysteresis areas, peak stress values and tangent moduli at the extreme points, however the framework can be easily adapted to other target quantities. One linear and two non-linear backstress components of the kinematic hardening model are introduced, although the analytical equations developed can be used to refine the model further, with more components. Two stabilized cycles are required to identify the main kinematic parameters. New analytical expressions for asymptotic ratcheting rates in uniaxial tests are developed and then used to tune the dynamics of the slightly non-linear (hence, slowest) backstress component. After obtaining the kinematic parameters, isotropic hardening laws can also be identified, by considering the evolution of the extreme points of the strain-controlled cycles before stabilization. Practical demonstrations of the procedure are provided by experimental tests carried out on a 7075-T6 aluminum alloy, 42CrMo4+QT steel, and a high-silicon ferritic ductile cast iron. An accurate reproduction of the material behavior is achieved, at a negligible computational cost.
