Limit strains in the processes of stretch-forming sheet metal

Abstract:

The process of the loss of stability is analysed for sheet metal subjected to biaxial tension when the ratio of the principal stresses 0.5 ⩽ σ 2 /σ 1 ⩽ 1 .

The process of the loss of stability is analysed for sheet metal subjected to biaxial tension when the ratio of the principal stresses 0.5 ⩽ σ 2 /σ 1 ⩽ 1 . The loss of stability manifests itself by a groove running in a direction perpendicular to the larger principal stress. In this groove local strains begin to concentrate gradually. In the initial stage of the process the deepening of the groove is associated with a gradually fading strain in the regions adjacent to the groove. This fading strain attains a certain limiting value e∗. This paper contains both experimental results and a theoretical analysis of the process of the generation of the groove based on anisotropic plasticity theory. The system of equations derived was solved numerically with the aid of a computer, which enabled the limiting strain of the sheet metal to be determined as a function of the following properties of the material: (i) Initial inhomogeneity of the sheet metal, (ii) exponent of the strain-hardening function, (iii) coefficient of normal anisotropy, (iv) initial plastic strain, (v) strain at which the fracture occurs. The results are discussed and the properties are described that influence the drawability of sheet metal used in the stretch-forming process. read more read less

On fracture locus in the equivalent strain and stress triaxiality space

Abstract:

The stress triaxiality is, besides the strain intensity, the most important factor that controls initiation of ductile fracture.

The stress triaxiality is, besides the strain intensity, the most important factor that controls initiation of ductile fracture. In this study, a series of tests including upsetting tests, shear tests and tensile tests on 2024-T351 aluminum alloy providing clues to fracture ductility for a wide range of stress triaxiality was carried out. Numerical simulations of each test was performed using commercial finite element code ABAQUS. Good correlation of experiments and numerical simulations was achieved. Based on the experimental and numerical results, the relation between the equivalent strain to fracture versus the stress triaxiality was quantified and it was shown that there are three distinct branches of this function with possible slope discontinuities in the transition regime. For negative stress triaxialities, fracture is governed by shear mode. For large triaxialities void growth is the dominant failure mode, while at low stress triaxialities between above two regimes, fracture may develop as a combination of shear and void growth modes. read more read less

From the stress-strain curves for sintered copper with various apparent densities, the stress-strain curves for pore-free copper is calculated by utilizing the basic equations.

Calibration and evaluation of seven fracture models

Over the past 5 years, there has been increasing interest of the automotive, aerospace, aluminum, and steel industries in numerical simulation of the fracture process of typical structural materials.

Over the past 5 years, there has been increasing interest of the automotive, aerospace, aluminum, and steel industries in numerical simulation of the fracture process of typical structural materials. Accordingly, there is a pressure on the developers of leading commercial codes, such as ABAQUS, LS-DYNA, and PAM-CRASH to implement reliable fracture criteria into those codes. Even though there are several options to address fracture in these and other commercial codes, no guidelines are given for the users as to which fracture criterion is suitable for a particular application and how to calibrate a given material for fracture. The objective of the present paper is to address the above issues and present a thorough comparative study of seven fracture criteria that are included in libraries of material models of non-linear finite element codes. A set of 15 tests recently conducted by the authors on 2024-T351 aluminum alloy is taken as a reference for the present study. The plane stress prevails in all these tests. These experiments are compared with the constant equivalent strain criterion, the Xue–Wierzbicki (X–W) fracture criterion, the Wilkins (W), the Johnson–Cook (J–C) and the CrachFEM fracture models. Additionally, the maximum shear (MS) stress model, and the fracture forming limit diagram (FFLD) are included in the present evaluation. All criteria are formulated in the general 3-D case for the power law hardening materials and then are specified for the plane stress condition. The advantage of working with plane stress is that there is one-to-one mapping from the stress to the strain space. Therefore, the fracture criteria formulated in the stress space can be compared with those expressed in the strain space and vice versa. Fracture loci for all seven cases were constructed in the space of the equivalent fracture strain and the stress triaxiality. Interesting observations were made regarding the range of applicability and expected errors of some of the most common fracture criteria. Besides evaluating the applicability of several fracture criteria, a detailed calibration procedure for each criterion is presented in the present paper. It was found rather unexpectedly that the MS stress fracture model closely follows the trend of all tests except the round bar tensile tests. The X–W criterion and the CrachFEM models predict correctly fracture in all types of experiments. The W criterion is working well in certain ranges of the stress triaxiality. read more read less

Functionally gradient materials (FGMs) have attracted much attention as advanced structural materials because of their heat-resistance properties In this paper, a study on the vibration of cylindrical shells made of a functionally gradient material (FGM) composed of stainless steel and nickel is presented The objective is to study the natural frequencies, the influence of constituent volume fractions and the effects of configurations of the constituent materials on the frequencies The properties are graded in the thickness direction according to a volume fraction power-law distribution The results show that the frequency characteristics are similar to that observed for homogeneous isotropic cylindrical shells and the frequencies are affected by the constituent volume fractions and the configurations of the constituent materials The analysis is carried out with strains–displacement relations from Love’s shell theory and the eigenvalue governing equation is obtained using Rayleigh–Ritz method The present analysis is validated by comparing results with those in the literature read more read less

I spent hours with MS word for reformatting. It was frustrating - plain and simple. With SciSpace, I can draft my manuscripts and once it is finished I can just submit. In case, I have to submit to another journal it is really just a button click instead of an afternoon of reformatting.
