The uniaxial specialization of a theory of cyclic viscoplasticity is described. The theory incorporates a realistic description of nonlinear stress-strain curves and of transient cyclic hardening and softening in both rate-dependent and rate-independent approximations. The applications to constant strain amplitude, incremental step tests, and random inputs are demonstrated.
