Abstract:The paper presents an analysis of a recently proposed failure criterion for thin sheets. According to Aretz , this criterion becomes numerically unstable for yield surfaces with locally constant exterior normal fields. Here we make more precise statements about the nature of this instability, asses the predictive capabilities of the criterion, and introduce a fitting parameter for its plane strain calibration.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
