Tensile elastic properties of typical stainless steels and nonferrous metals as affected by plastic deformation and by heat treatment

Mcadam, D J Mebs, R W

A general discussion is given of the relationships between stress, strain, and permanent set. From stress-set curves are derived proof stresses based on five different percentages of permanent set. The influence of prior plastic extension on these values is illustrated and discussed. A discussion is given of the influence of work-hardening, rest interval, and internal stress on the form of the proof stress-extension curve.
