Determination of Material Properties

GOM Correlate Features determination of material properties

The measured data from typical materials testings, such as Nakajima, bulge, tensile, bending, shear and hole expansion tests, are evaluated in the software to determine the material characteristics. With the material characteristics, reliable data such as forming limit curve, failure strain, n-value, r-value, Poisson’s ratio, Young’s modulus (elastic modulus), stress-strain curve and material thickness reduction are computed. These are used as input parameters for the simulation, enabling a more precise material model and a more accurate prediction of material behavior.
