Numerical Investigation of the Limit Strains in Sheet Forming Involving Bending
TypeCommunications avec actes
In this work, the finite element method is used to simulate a typical FLD test over tools of different radii. Parameters like the mesh density, element type, numerical determination of the onset of strain localization, limit strain definition etc. have been investigated. Finally, the limit strain for plane strain tension has been determined as a function of the thickness vs. tool radius (t/R) ratio. These simulations confirm that increasing the curvature of the tool increases the value of the limit strains. They also reveal that, as soon as bending becomes important, the practical relevance of the limit strains diminishes - At least with their current definition. The need for new strain localization models is emphasized, together with some of the associated challenges.

Investigation of advanced strain-path dependent material models for sheet metal forming simulations HADDAG, Badis; BALAN, Tudor; ABED-MERAIM, Farid (Elsevier, 2006)Sheet metal forming processes often involve complex loading sequences. To improve the prediction of some undesirable phenomena, such as springback, physical behavior models should be considered. This paper investigates ...
Elastic-plastic analyses using the solid-shell finite element SHB8PS and evaluation on sheet forming applications SALAHOUELHADJ, Abdellah; CHALAL, Hocine; ABED-MERAIM, Farid; BALAN, Tudor (Onate, E; Owen, DRJ; Peric, D; Suarez, B, 2011)In this contribution, the formulation of the SHB8PS continuum shell finite element is extended to anisotropic elastic-plastic behavior models with combined isotropic-kinematic hardening at large deformations. The resulting ...
Prediction of strain localization in sheet metal forming using elastoplastic-damage model and localization criterion HADDAG, Badis; ABED-MERAIM, Farid; BALAN, Tudor (2007)The aim of this work is to study the strain localization during the plastic deformation of sheets metals. This phenomenon is precursor for the fracture of drawing parts, thus its prediction using advanced behavior models ...
