property of yield delay

Propagation of elastic-tough-plastic wave in a rod of ideally plastic material which possesses the property of yield delay

The great number of theoretical and experimental investigations indicate that it is necessary to consider plastic deformation of metals as a process which proceeds in certain time interval. However, in such approaches, contradictive points of view emerge concerning investigation of wave processes in materials which possess peculiar properties. In order to describe different mechanical effects, new models of plastic medium are being improved. The phenomenon of emergence of a tooth yield in the strain diagram belongs to such properties of materials.
