Input Data Determination for Large Strain Simulations


Article Preview

Numerical simulations are widely used for forming processes optimizations nowadays. They significantly contribute to improvement of forgings quality and production costs reduction. The crucial points of the numerical simulations are material input data and implemented material models. The paper is dealing with overview of methods for the input data measurement. There are discussed tests with various options of strain measurements as well as modifications of compression tests. Part of the paper is dealing with 3D strain measurements by Digital Image Correlation (DIC) enabling local strains measurements. DIC enables direct comparison of strains experimentally measured and strains obtained by numerical simulations, which is going to be presented. Finally, possibilities of complex material description considering plastic damage are presented. The last approach is the most accurate providing the most information on material behavior for FEM simulation, the procedure includes measurements on samples of various geometries with various stress strain conditions. Examples of sample sets for these measurements are shown here together with material models describing multiaxial plastic flow and damage.
