Cyclic true stress - true strain curves were obtained using general-purpose shipbuilding steel in the large strain region. Test methods are incremental step test and static tensile test after cyclic loading. The stress-strain curves for static and cyclic loading were compared to investigate the cause of the difference between each other. A simple method for estimating the cyclic stress-strain curves was proposed. The diameter and curvature of the smallest cross-section of the specimen were measured using telecentric measurement device, and the true stress - true strain curve was obtained using the Bridgman correction method. Using the measurement method, cyclic stress-strain diagrams were obtained in the region where the true strain exceeded 1% by performing cyclic tensile tests using the incremental step method and static tensile tests after cyclic loading. The influence of the test method and maximum displacement conditions on the cyclic stress-strain curve was small within the scope of this study. There was little difference in the elongation between the static tensile test and the static tensile test after cyclic loading. The difference in yield stress between static and cyclic loading was discussed in terms of macro-yield mechanisms at intergranular and transgranular. A simple method for estimating cyclic stress-strain curves from a static stress-strain curve was proposed. The specimens used in this study are general-purpose shipbuilding steels, and the results should be applicable to similar steels for welding and structures.
