Mechanical Behavior of Advanced High Strength Steel at High Strain Rates
This paper presents the mechanical behavior of advanced high strength steel, Dual Phase 1200 steel (DP1200) at high strain rates (250s-1 - 750s-1) under tensile loading. The mechanical behavior of materials depends on the loading rates. The accurate knowledge of the mechanical behavior of materials at high strain rates is essential in order to improve the safety against crash, impacts and blast loads. High strain rate experiments are performed on modified Hopkinson bar (MHB) apparatus; however, some quasi-static (0.001s-1) tests are also conducted on electromechanical universal testing machine at tensile loads. Based on the experimental results, the material parameters of the existing Cowper-Symonds and Johnson-Cook models are determined. These models fit the experimental data well and hence can be recommended for the numerical simulation of the problems involving this material at high strain rates.
