Applying Hill's self-consistent method to finite elastic-plastic deformations, the authors estimate the overall moduli of polycrystalline solids. The model predicts a Bauschinger effect, hardening, and formation of vertex or corner on the yield surface for both microscopically non-hardening and hardening crystals. The changes in the instantaneous moduli with deformation are examined.
