A simple elastic-plastic constitutive model based on the two-surface theory is developed to describe deformation behavior of austenitic stainless steels under multiaxial cyclic loading. Dependency of saturated stress range both on strain range and the proportionality of loading is considered. To establish a precise procedure for determination of material constants for nonproportional loading, the intervariable relation in the axial-torsional circular strain-path condition is studied in detail. A full procedure is then developed for determination of all material parameters. Finally, the effectiveness of the present model is demonstrated by application to axial-torsional cyclic tests for type 304 stainless steel at 550°C.
