Finite Element Analysis (FEA

Project: Impact Loading using the
Johnson-Cook Plasticity-Damage

• Analyze the impact loading of an object on
aluminum plates using FEA tool ABAQUS
Plate Dimensions:
t= 26.3 mm
w=304 mm
L= 304 mm

Projectile Dimensions:
d= 12.9 mm
lp= 88.9 mm

L=304 mm

• Determine:
• Plot

t= 26.3 mm

ABAQUS Material Definition • Add Damage Evolution • Set the displacement at failure to 0.9 .

Creating an Assembly • Double click on instances • Set the projectile 100 mm from the origin (center of the plate ) .

Select Mechanical.Interactions properties • Double click in interaction properties. Normal Behavior . select contact.

Interaction properties continued • Select the default set and click OK .

Interactions • Double click on Interactions. General Contact. All with self and add the created IntProp-1 in individual property assignment .

Creating Mesh (partitioning) Aluminum Plate • Create a Partition of the plate • Seed edges and select the partition lines .

Creating Mesh (Continued) • Repeat the procedure in the opposite directions for the rest of the internal lines .

Creating Mesh .

Creating Mesh Projectile • Create a Partition of the projectile • Select an the approximate global size .

Creating Mesh • From Mesh Element Type Select Element Deletion for the Plate and the projectile .

Creating a Step • Double click Steps under Model tree and Create step window will pop up • This time you will modify the time period .

• Comment on the results for Von Mises stress. .Conduct simulations • Change the values of displacements at failure from 0. the trajectory of the projectile and the velocity • Improve the model using your favorite meshing technique to refine the center of the plate or reduce the geometry to the half or a quarter.1 to 0.9 and keep damage evolution. the morphology of the plate and the hole.

. 000 mm/s to 1.000 000 mm/s consider the time that you need to input on step-time period.Notes • By modifying the velocity from 100.
