LS-DYNA (MAT_024 or SAMP)+GISSMO shell element failure model for metals

Test ID



Rate dependent tensile data is generated at 5 strain rates from .01 -100/s. DIC is used to measure a variety of properties including grooved tensile properties with two different notch diameters, 0 degree orientation shear properties, and biaxial failure via an Erichssen cupping test. Quasi-static tensile tests on full sized tensile bars are performed as well. A density measurement is also provided. Specimen preparation is included. An elastoplastic and fracture material card for shell elements is provided by our partner, IDIADA. MAT_024 or SAMP-1 may be used as the base model, depending on which model provides the most robust and accurate representation of the material behavior. For further information about the use of SAMP model for metals please contact us. The element size is between 3-5 mm. The simulations of certain deformation modes are also provided.
