LS-DYNA MAT_024+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 and open hole tensile properties, 0 degree orientation shear properties, and biaxial failure via an Erichssen cupping test. Quasi-static tensile tests on full sized tensile bars and double wide specimens are also performed. 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. The element size is between 3-5 mm. The simulations of certain deformation modes are also provided.
