A generalized Bouc-Wen model with flexible shape control was proposed to describe the asymmetric hysteresis effect of Kevlar tether under quasi-static loading. A appropriate method to identify the model parameters step by step was developed by combining the mathematical model with the features of the experimental data. Theoretical curve under cyclic load was calculated using numerical method. Results showed that the experimental data fitted well with the theoretical curve, which verified the correctness of the model and the validity of the identification method.
