Recent research indicates that accurate material behavior modeling plays an important role in the estimation of residual stresses in the bore of autofrettaged tubes. In this paper, the material behavior under plastic deformation is considered to be a function of the first stress invariant in addition to the second and the third invariants of the deviatoric stress tensor. The yield surface is assumed to depend on the first stress invariant and the Lode angle parameter which is defined as a function of the second and the third invariants of the deviatoric stress tensor. Furthermore for estimating the unloading behavior, the Chaboche's hardening evolution equation is modified. These modifications are implemented by adding new terms that include the effect of the first stress invariant and pervious plastic deformation history. For evaluation of this unloading behavior model a series of loading-unloading tests are conducted on four types of test specimens which are made of the high-strength steel, DIN 1.6959. In addition finite element simulations are implemented and the residual stresses in the bore of a simulated thick-walled tube are estimated under the autofrettage process. In estimating the residual stresses the effect of the tube end condition is also considered.
