What is it about?

A conceptual study showing how expensive experiments can be replaced by simulations to obtain material parameters for sheet metal forming operations.

Why is it important?

Experimental characterization is expensive in terms of time and cost. Here, it is shown how the characterization needed to fit yield functions can be (partially) substituted by crystal plasticity simulations.


Now it is time to bring such approaches into industrial application or at least figure out what is needed to do that.
