StressCheck Tutorial: Isotropic vs Kinematic Hardening for Cold Worked Holes
Abstract: Simulating reverse plasticity effects due to cold-working for isotropic (Beta = 0) and kinematic (Beta = 1) hardening, where Beta is is defined as the mixing coefficient between isotropic and kinematic hardening.

“We have found StressCheck® very useful for computational fracture mechanics for both metallic and composite components. In recent years it has been extensively used in determining beta factors for RAAF’s C-130 Wing DTA locations and associated generic research.”
