Project description

Fundamental research on the plastic deformation behaviour and material characterization is needed for modern high-strength sheet materials and new plastic forming processes. The currently used material models (developed for eg. mild steel) do not allow to adequately model the forming processes. New analytical material models will be developed based on numerical simulations and results from simple small-scale experiments.
