Advances in Constitutive Modeling of Plasticity for Forming Applications

Academic Article


  • A succinct description of advanced constitutive models for applications to forming process simulations is provided. These models are continuum-based because they are more efficient in terms of computation time than microstructure–based models. However, they are so–called advanced because they are considered in many scientific studies but rather scarcely used in industrial applications. In addition, the relationship between these continuum constitutive models and multi-scale approaches based on crystal plasticity, dislocation dynamics and mechanics of multi-phase materials, such as advanced high strength steels, is substantiated.
