Tensile Test with Strain Rate Dependent Plasticity

Application ID: 75431

In this example, a tensile test is simulated at four different strain rates. The Johnson-Cook hardening law is used to model the strain rate dependency of the plastic hardening.

The temperature distribution and thermal expansion caused by the heating generated by the plastic deformation are also computed. In a separate study, the influence of including a temperature dependency in the Johnson-Cook model is examined.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
