The primary purpose of the present investigation was to determine the relation between stresses and plastic strains of wrought aluminum alloys for three types of loading, tension, compression, and torsion. A secondary objective was to identify which assumptions of an ideal theory of elasto-plasticity are invalid for these alloys.
