Main Question or Discussion Point

Does Poisson's Ratio only apply to material still in the linear elastic range or is it still true for the material that has undergone plastic deformation?

Linear elastic only; outside this region, measurements of Poisson's ratio will trend up to 0.5 (constant volume).
