In the context of a purely mechanical rate-type theory of plasticity, a special set of constitutive equations is discussed. A method [1,2] of characterizing strain-hardening behavior is utilized to examine the different types of response that may be exhibited. Loci of constant strain-hardening behavior in stress space and regions of hardening, softening, and perfectly plastic behavior are determined.
