Abstract

Elasto-plasticity behavior of type A5052-O and AA6016-T4 aluminum alloy sheets was examined by performing several experiments of uniaxial tension, biaxial stretching and in-plane cyclic tension-compression. Both sheets exhibit apparent r-value planar anisotropy, especially for AA6016-T4 it is extremely strong, while their flow stress directionality under uniaxial tension is not so significant. Both the sheets show strong cyclic hardening with weak Bauschinger effect. Such material behavior is well described by Yoshida-Uemori kinematic hardening model combined with an appropriate choice of anisotropic yield function.
