Plastic Zone Size at Sharp Indentation of Classical Elastic-Plastic Materials: Behavior at Ideally Plastic Hardening
2016 (English)In: Journal of engineering materials and technology, ISSN 0094-4289, E-ISSN 1528-8889, Vol. 138, no 1Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
Sharp indentation problems are examined based on finite element methods (FEMs) and self-similarity considerations. The analysis concerns classical elastic-plastic materials with low, or no, strain-hardening and especially the details of the behavior of the size of the plastic zone are at issue. The results are correlated using a single parameter, comprising both geometrical and mechanical properties, and compared with previously presented semi-analytical findings. The numerical analysis is restricted to cone indentation of elastic-ideally plastic materials.
