Elasto-Plastic Analysis of metal component with Cyclic Loading



I am pursuing my master's in Mech. Engg. and working on Abaqus for FEA of components. In one of the analysis, 

I am required to apply cyclic loading on the component to determine the Stresses at the edges. Its a compression

cyclic loading with kinematic hardening taken into account. From the documentation for ABAQUS 6.9.1, I found that

in order to apply kinematic hardening in metals, one must take it as Combined (Isotropic + Kinematic) Hardening.


The two concerns I have about this analysis are:

  1. How should I apply cyclic loading?
  2. Procedure for Elasto-plastic analysis.


Please write in your suggestions and recommendations.
