Experiences with Experimental Determination of the Yield Locus and its Evolution for Advanced High Strength Steels 2010-01-0976

Accurate description of the plastic yield locus is important for accurate prediction of sheet metal formability and springback using FEM. This paper presents experimental results obtained for the initial plastic yield locus and its evolution for some selected Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). A review of available experimental methods was conducted to select appropriate techniques for testing. For loading in tension-shear, the Arcan test was selected, however because of lack of uniformity of the stress distribution, the test was not included in the final series of tests. Shear testing, uniaxial tensile testing, plane strain testing and stacked compression testing were used to determine the yield locus. From the test results and analysis for the selected AHSS, it seems that the onset of initial yielding and its isotropic evolution to 4% plastic strain is best described by the von Mises yield function.
