Paper Title:
Design and Testing of a New Metallic Solution for Toecap Component on Safety Footwear
  Abstract

This paper explores an innovative solution based on the geometric redesign of integrant safety shoe`s component, the toe cap component. The investigation program covered some steps as the computational modeling of the toecap component, a set of numerical simulations in the FEM context with the toecap model discretization used for multiple Non-Linear Analysis on plastic domain, and experimental tests for ISO EN 20345 certification to support and comparing results. The aim of the study is to explore the work hardening phenomenon of the high strength steel DP600 on toecap component formed, to predict an expected mechanical strength increase and a consequent significant reduction of the weight. The study points to a thickness decreasing value of approximately 50% and equivalent reduce of weight.
