Plastic Crushing Behavior of Thin-Walled Spheres
Plastic crushing behavior of thin-walled spheres under various loading cases is studied using Finite Element Method. The entire plastic deformation process is tracked during the post-buckling process. The results are compared with the experimental results reported in literature , and very good agreements between the numerical simulation and the experimental result are achieved.
