Dynamic Behaviour of Advanced High Strength Steel

Advanced high strength steels (AHSSs) are characterized by an excellent balance of strength and ductility and are therefore ideally suited for automotive applications. DyMaLab has a long tradition of research into the impact-dynamic and crashworthiness properties of automotive steels. Steels of the first, second and current third generation AHSSs have been studied. Key element of […]

Dynamic Fracture Behaviour of Pipeline Steel

The occurrence of a longitudinal crack propagating along a high pressure gas pipeline is a catastrophic event, which involves both economic losses and environmental damage. Hence, the fracture propagation control is essential to ensure pipeline integrity. Modern fracture control strategies for high pressure pipelines rely on numerical simulations of ductile crack propagations and arrest. The […]

Static Small Sample Testing

DyMaLab has designed and developed static test infrastructure for tensile and compressive testing of purpose-designed miniaturized samples. The home-grown small sample test setups include a micro test device for the quasi-static strain rate regime capable of measuring (very) low force levels at small displacements. The DyMaLab setups, skills and competencies in small sample testing can […]

High Speed Forming

The strain rate dependence of plastic yield and failure properties displayed by most metals affects energies, forces and forming limits involved in high speed forming processes. At DyMaLab, the influence of the strain rate on the forming properties of several sheet metals isstudied. An approach was developed to predict dynamic forming limit diagrams (FLDs) based […]
