This phenomenon is visible as hysteresis loop pinching (Fig.
Fatigue testing--Fatigue was measured with a hysteresis method that allows measurement of different properties simultaneously, viz,, stress, strain amplitude, stiffness, and stored and loss energies, material damping and cyclic creep behavior, A servo-hydraulic test machine (MTS 8100) with a digital controller and a software package for the evaluation of the hysteresis loop was used in this study, The available software package makes it possible to digitize the hysteresis loop of material, which is measured continuously, and a mid-curve is calculated in the hysteresis loop.
When a material crystallizes and melts during a cyclic deformation, the material produces a substantial hysteresis loop (see figure 9 for raw plots).
Type H1 and H4 are two extreme conditions: hysteresis loop of H1 type is almost vertical, and H4 type is nearly parallel over an appreciable range of relative pressure.
Figure 5 shows the hysteresis loop for the obtained alloys.
A low cycle failure of the coupler complex occurs because of accumulated fatigue damage caused by the elastic-plastic hysteresis loop and by quasi-static damage affected by accumulated plastic strain in tension direction.

He detailed the variations that occur when using a rheometer hysteresis loop to indicate thixotropic behavior, compared with a rheometer using a three-speed step technique.
