The constitutive equations of the cubic crystal type materials are investigated theoretically. The restrictions on the fourth and second order elastic and yield coefficients are derived from the cubic symmetricity. The stress which results from the shape distortion becomes the deviatoric stress, and therefore the deformation is independent of the pressure. The mapped constitutive equations to a six-dimensional space are obtained. The constitutive equations of the isotropic plastic materials are also discussed.
