Contribution à la simulation du processus de déformation plastique à froid des tôles

Abstract : The thesis deals with the modelling and the numerical prediction of the forming behaviour of thin sheets. This behaviour is closely linked to the different aspects involved in the description of the plastic behaviour, namely, strain-hardening and anisotropy. The work, conducted under the joint collaboration of the University of Pitesti and the University Paul Verlaine - Metz, is performed on steel sheets used for automotive building. The experimental characterization of strain-hardening and anisotropy is obtained from uniaxial tension tests. The characterization of the forming behaviour is performed by means of expansion tests ? Marciniak tests and Nakazima tests- and cup deep-drawing tests. The forming Limit Curves are determined in the Marciniak tests, using sheets of varying widths. The analysis of strain fields is made using a method allowing for a continuous recording of images during the tests, coupled with the determination of the displacement field and the calculation of strains. The load-displacement curve and the limiting dome height in the Nakazima tests have also been determined on sheets of varying widths, as well as the earing profile in the cup drawing tests. On the basis of these results, the experimental forming behaviour has been compared to the numerical predictions obtained with the finite element code Abaqus/Explicit. The whole results have been analysed, and discussed in relation
