In order to study the applicability of the proposed hybrid constitutive model for cyclic plasticity to nonproportional loading, type 304 stainless-steel specimens subjected to sinusoidal loading that could change the degree of nonproportionality of the strain path were examined in detail. The subsequent yield surface during the loading was discussed in advance because the plastic deformation induced anisotropy coefficient tensor in the yield function had to be determined from the yield surface obtained by the experiment. From the experimental results, the subsequent yield surfaces during the loading could be assumed to be of the quadratic form of stress. The simulations based on the model gave a good description of the sinusoidal loading, irrespective of the degree of nonproportionality of the strain path.
