In this paper we give a new method for finding the Mϵmax curve in the case of symmetrical pure bending of bars in plasticity. This method is both accurate and comparatively easy to use. At the end of the paper we show how it is possible to express any σ-ϵ curve as the sum of a number of elastic plastic-stress strain lines.
