Determination of flow curves under equibiaxial stress conditions

Academic Article


  • Three experimental methods have been used to establish flow curves for a low carbon steel under biaxial stress conditions: the hydraulic bulge test, the stack compression test and the biaxial tensile test. The individual tests are discussed and the results for a DC06 IF steel grade compared. Initially the results appear to be different but after compensation, including strain rate and temperature correction, the true hardening curves are coinciding.
