Unified Solution of Expansion of Cylindrical Cavity of Elastic-Brittle-Plastic Strain-Softening Materials with Different Elastic Modulus in Tensile and Compression
For strain-softening materials with different elastic modulus of tensile compression, two controlling parameters were introduced to take into account the different modulus and strainsoftening properties. By means of twin shear unified strength theory, unified solutions calculating stress and displacement fields of expansion of cylindrical cavity were derived. The effects caused by different elastic modulus in tensile and compression, different models and strain-softening rates on stress and displacement fields, development of plastic zone were analyzed. The results show the ultimate expansion pressure, stress and displacement fields and development of plastic zone vary with the changes of different elastic modular, different models and strain-softening properties.
