Experiments that demonstrate the basic quantitative and qualitative aspects of the cyclic plasticity of metals are presented in Part 1. Three incremental plasticity kinematic hardening models of prominence are based on the Prager, Ziegler, and Mroz hardening rules, of which the former two have been more frequently used than the latter. For a specimen previously fully stabilized by out of phase cyclic loading the results of a subsequent cyclic nonproportional strain path experiment are compared to the predictions of the above models. A formulation employing a Tresca yield surface translating inside a Tresca limit surface according to the Mroz hardening rule gives excellent predictions and also demonstrates the erasure of memory material property.
