Isotropic hardening law

Hi all,

I have come across the two relations where aim to describe the isotropic hardening of a material

Power law:

R = Kεpn R is the variation in stress from initial yield, εp is the plastic strain where K is the strenght coefficient and n is the strain hardening exponent as observed in Ramberg Osgood equations.

Exponential law:

R = R∞ [1-e(-bεp)] where R∞ is the saturated value of the R variation, b is the rate at which the sauration is reached.

 

Prager's Hardening Rule

Hi all

I am currently investigating Prager hardening room which is stated as the simplist linear kinematic hardening rule. I was wondering if anyone has worked with this model and if so if you have managed to identify how to determine the constant used for the back stress equation

 

dα =C * dεp ( this is epsilon dot p which is the equivalent plastic strain)

 

Please can you let me know how to determine the constant C from experimental results?
