In the present paper, the Preisach model of hysteresis is applied to model cyclic behavior of elasto-plastic material. Rate of loading and viscous effects will not be considered. The problem of axial loading of rectangular cross-section and cyclic bending of rectangular tube (box) will be studied in details. Hysteretic stress-strain loop for prescribed history of stress change is plotted for material modeled by series connection of three unite element. Also moment-curvature hysteretic loop is obtained for a prescribed curvature change of rectangular tube (box). All obtained results clearly show advantages of the Preisach model for describing cyclic behavior of elasto-plastic material.
