Hill’s extremum principle for a strain-hardening plastic material is applied to determine the displacement distribution and the strains at the center and at the roots of rounded V-grooves in a bar in tension. This analysis is used to present the shear strain at fracture as a function of triaxial tension for 7075-T6 aluminum, as compared to the more usual tension and torsion tests.
