Three-dimensional numerical simulation of the Kalthoff experiment

Abstract

We use the finite element code DYNA3D to analyze large thermomechanical deformations of a prenotched plate impacted on the notched side by a cylindrical projectile moving parallel to the axis of the notch. Both the projectile and the plate are assumed to be made of the same thermally softening but strain and strainrate hardening material. It is found that… (More)
