I want to estimate a elastoplastic model to explore the RESIDUAL
DEFORMATION. The model is similar to a beam but with a slightly
varying cross section. The load is applied and then released.
I need to estimate what Cosmos calls RK which defines the
proportion of kinematic and isotropic hardening. What is the
difference between isotropic hardening and kinematic hardening? How
does each effect the model? Cosmos's help file is over my head.
