Formability prediction of AL7020 with experimental and numerical failure criteria

Abstract : The formability of aluminum alloy sheet metal is a key issue in its design, analysis and operation of manufacturing processes. The conventional forming limit diagram (FLD) which evaluates the principal strains at failure is often used to quantify the formability limits. Due to the sensitivity of the FLD to the strain paths, the forming limit stress diagram (FLSD) based on principal stresses is shown to be more efficient. In contrast, a fully coupled behavior-damage models are recently proposed, which allow to predict the strain localization and the failure occurrence based on appropriates fully coupled constitutive equations describing the main physical phenomena involved. In this work a fully coupled constitutive equations taking into account the mixed nonlinear isotropic and kinematic hardenings fully coupled with the isotropic ductile damage is used. The microcracks closure is added to affect the equivalent plastic strain at fracture in a large range of stress states. Various tests are conducted to test the formability of aluminum alloy AL7020. The three different methods (FLD, FLSD and the fully coupled model) are identified and validated separately. With the help of Nakazima tests and cross-section deep drawing tests, the quality of the three failure criteria for AL7020 are compared and demonstrated with the investigations of the simulation results.
