Residual Stress after Permanent Stress

Residual Stress after Permanent Stress

Residual Stress after Permanent Stress

(OP)
Hi,

I have a case that the metal rod being bent to L shape and continue to pull it.

There is no heat treatment and there should be residual stress after bending into L shape. If I run two analysis separately, 1. plastic deformation to get the total strain;2. max stress/ strain when the L hook being pull, then sum up the total strain for assessment?

RE: Residual Stress after Permanent Stress

The approach is generally correct. But since you are applying a tensile force in the last step it is natural that you will calculate stress.This stress needs to be superimposed on the residual stresses with due regard to sign, i.e. tensile/compressive.

eBook - Functional Prototyping Using Metal 3D Printing
Functional prototypes are a key step in product development – they give engineers a chance to test new ideas and designs while also revealing how the product will stand up to real-world use. And when it comes to functional prototypes, 3D printing is rewriting the rules of what’s possible. Download Now
