This book fills the gap in the literature regarding the cyclic plasticity of metals as a comprehensive review resource covering fundamental rules of cyclic plasticity alongside established classical models, as well as various applications. The book can therefore be used as a study source book for many upper-year undergraduate and graduate engineering students, as well as academic researchers in the fields of cyclic plasticity modeling and fatigue analysis.
Secondly, the book serves as an important reference text for industry R&D researchers and practicing design engineers, especially durability analysts. A major part of the book is thus devoted to the practical applications of cyclic plasticity such as notch analysis.
