I want to model a shear failure of the Lap shear joint which is connected by a self piercing rivet (Top sheet is Steel and Bottom sheet is aluminium joined with high strength steel Böllhoff standard Self piercing rivet). Basically its a crash simulation in Quasi-static loading. So what would be the parameters in have to specify and the what type of a failure model and criteria should be given to model in abaqus 2018 version.
Thanks in advance for reply.
