Local Plastic Instabilities of Perforated Thin-Walled Bars – FEM Modelling and DIC Verification

Andrzej Michał Piotrowski , Marcin Daniel Gajewski , Cezary Witold Ajdukiewicz


In this paper results of testing and modelling of perforated thin-walled bars of low slenderness are shown. Tested and modelled elements in general are used as structural elements for storage systems. In such case the compression mode is dominant, so the proper understanding of the element behaviour in post-critical stage is essential for system safety estimation. To predict post critical behaviour the suitable constitutive models of elasto-plasticity are needed. The most essential to such simulations is the fact that local deformations and rotation angles are significant, so the large deformation modelling regarding to geometry and constitutive models have to be used. In the paper for FEM (finite element method) modelling the ABAQUS system is used, and obtained solutions are verified experimentally using Instron 8802 universal testing machine. Aside from measuring critical forces and final deformations for several samples and eight different bar’s lengths, also strain and displacement fields were verified with application of DIC (digital image correlation) system ARAMIS. Because of the testing machine and DIC system limitations only very low slenderness (1÷11) samples were taken into account. Bars of such a low slenderness should be treated as shells or three dimensional objects in numerical modelling
