A multi-linear kinematic, two dimensional finite element model incorporating Bauschinger effect, developed using ANSYS commercial software is used to determine the effect of machining both at the bore and at the outside diameter, on the depth of yield, maximum firing pressure and final residual stress field present in an autofrettaged gun tube. The model, which is in good agreement with experimental findings, clearly shows that the reduction in maximum compressive circumferential stress is more sensitive to internal machining than to external machining; the depth of yield remains stable and there is no movement of the elastic-plastic interface, relative to its location before material removal. If the internal machining removes material in which reverse yield has occurred, the maximum firing pressure is not affected. The finite element analysis supported by experimental evidence thus leads to an optimization technique for gun tube design.
