Convergence analysis and validation of sequential limit analysis of plane-strain problems of the von Mises model with non-linear isotropic hardening

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR NUMERICAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING, Issue 3 2005
S.-Y. Leu
Abstract The paper presents sequential limit analysis of plane-strain problems of the von Mises model with non-linear isotropic hardening by using a general algorithm. The general algorithm is a combined smoothing and successive approximation (CSSA) method. In the paper, emphasis is placed on its convergence analysis and validation applied to sequential limit analysis involving materials with isotropic hardening. By sequential limit analysis, the paper treats deforming problems as a sequence of limit analysis problems stated in the upper bound formulation. Especially, the CSSA algorithm was proved to be unconditionally convergent by utilizing the Cauchy,Schwarz inequality. Finally, rigorous validation was conducted by numerical and analytical studies of a thick-walled cylinder under pressure. It is found that the computed limit loads are rigorous upper bounds and agree very well with the analytical solutions. Copyright 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]


A basic thin shell triangle with only translational DOFs for large strain plasticity

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR NUMERICAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING, Issue 1 2001
Fernando G. Flores
Abstract A simple finite element triangle for thin shell analysis is presented. It has only nine translational degrees of freedom and is based on a total Lagrangian formulation. Large strain plasticity is considered using a logarithmic strain,stress pair. A plane stress isotropic behaviour with an additive decomposition of elastic and plastic strains is assumed. A hyperelastic law is considered for the elastic part while for the plastic part a von Mises yield function with non-linear isotropic hardening is adopted. The element is an extension of a previous similar rotation-free triangle element based upon an updated Lagrangian formulation with hypoelastic constitutive law. The element termed BST (for basic shell triangle) has been implemented in an explicit (hydro-) code adequate to simulate sheet-stamping processes and in an implicit static/dynamic code. Several examples are shown to assess the performance of the present formulation. Copyright 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]


Inverse estimation of material properties for sheet metals

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR NUMERICAL METHODS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, Issue 2 2004
K. M. Zhao
The main objective of this paper is to estimate the material properties for sheet metals subjected to loading and reverse loading by using an inverse method. Cyclic three-point bending tests are conducted. Bending moments are computed from the measured data, namely, punch stroke, punch load, bending strain and bending angle. Bending moments are also calculated based on the selected constitutive model. Normal anisotropy and non-linear isotropic/kinematic hardening are considered. Material parameters are estimated by minimizing the difference between these two bending moments. Modified Levenberg,Marquardt method is used in the optimization procedure. Stress,strain curves are generated with the material parameters found in this way. Copyright 2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]
