Grahic Jump Location
Performance of constitutive model with the Bodner-Partom viscosity function using Z(ε̄p) according to Eq. (7). The markers represent the experimentally found stress-strain relations out of the tensile tests for different strain rates. The bold solid line represents the stress-strain relation of Eq. (6).
Grahic Jump Location
A typical mesh produced by the adaptive automatic remeshing algorithm
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of experimental maximum blanking forces with numerical predictions using the compressible Leonov model with Bodner-Partom viscosity over a large range of punching velocities.
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison for experimental punch displacements at fracture and numerical predictions using the criteria of Table 2 as a function of blanking velocities. The error bars represent twice the standard-deviations for the experiments (95 percent interval).
