How to get the Tangent Modulus for Bilinear Kinematic Hardending

    • Colin Zhang

      I want to analyze the metal plasticity by multiple steps of loading and unloading. As I have only Young's Modulus, yield strength, ultimate strength and elongation, I decided to use Bilinear Kinematic Hardending. How can I get the Tangent Modulus? Any formula available. Thanks.
