A slip theory is presented for the calculation of the incremental stress-strain relations of a face-centered cubic polycrystal such as aluminum and its alloys, from its experimental uniaxial curves. This theory satisfies the conditions of equilibrium, condition of continuity of displacement as well as the slip characteristics of the component crystals. Numerical calculations based on this theory give results which are in good agreement with known experimental data on thin wall cylinders subject to different ratios of incremental axial and torsional loadings after being compressed beyond the elastic range.
