The time dependent behavior of 2618-T61 aluminum under mixed loads and constraints (tension relaxation and torsion creep) is investigated. Experiments include tensile relaxation; simultaneous tension relaxation with step changes in torsion creep and reversed torsion; and alternate creep and relaxation. Results were compared with theoretical models developed previously using as input creep and creep recovery data under constant stress states only. Experimental observations were generally well described by strain hardening flow rules. Some failures in describing the material behavior by the state variable approaches (kinematic hardening) are also discussed.
