Within the framework of an existing purely mechanical, rate-type theory of plasticity, detailed calculations are presented for certain types of material response during stress and strain cycling in a uniaxial homogeneous deformation. These features pertain specifically to material response in stress cycling between fixed values of stress in tension and compression (not necessarily equal in magnitude) resulting in ratcheting of strain, and a type of saturation hardening caused by strain cycling between any two fixed values of strain when the mean value of stress (in tension and compression) tends to zero.
