Fracture prediction in plastic deformation processes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes the use of the finite-element technique to predict fracture initiation in a range of simple metalforming operations. These cover typical processes and enable deformation and fracture initiation to be examined under several different loading conditions. Three types of metalforming operation are considered, simple upsetting, axisymmetric extrusion, and strip compression and tension
