Simulation of Structural Applications and Sheet Metal Forming Processes Based on Quadratic Solid–Shell Elements with Explicit Dynamic Formulation
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
In this work, nonlinear dynamic analysis of thin structures is investigated using quadratic solid–shell (SHB-EXP) elements. The proposed SHB-EXP elements are based on a fully three-dimensional formulation using an in-plane reduced-integration scheme along with the assumed-strain method in order to alleviate most locking phenomena. These developments consist of a 20-node hexahedral element, denoted SHB20-EXP, and its 15-node prismatic counterpart, denoted SHB15-EXP. The formulation of these elements is combined with fully three-dimensional behavior models, including elastic behavior as well as anisotropic plastic behavior for metallic materials. The resulting formulations are implemented into the ABAQUS explicit/dynamic software package in the framework of large displacements and rotations. First, to assess the performance of the SHB-EXP elements, four representative nonlinear dynamic benchmark tests have been conducted. Then, impact/crash problem and deep drawing of cylindrical cup have been performed to demonstrate the capabilities of the SHB-EXP elements in handling various types of nonlinearities (large strains, anisotropic plasticity, and double-sided contact). Comparisons with results obtained by ABAQUS elements as well as with reference solutions taken from the literature show the good capabilities of the developed quadratic SHB-EXP elements for the explicit dynamic simulation of thin structures.
