Strain Hardening Modeling of High-Strength Stainless Steel Tube
By the uniaxial tensile tests of both the arc and tube section samples, the strain hardening curves of 21-6-9 high-strength stainless steel tube(HSST) are obtained. Considering that the uniform plastic deformation stage of the curve is short and the flow stress in large strain area is unknown for this tube, different strain hardening models have been established based on single and piecewise functions, respectively. By comparing the experimental results and the numerical ones in terms of load-displacement curves, it shows the constitutive model achieved by three Swift fitting functions can better characterize the strain hardening response of the 21-6-9 HSST in large strain region.
