What would happen if we applied a stress greater than the yield stress to a rigid-perfectly plastic material?

Say we had a material that was rigid perfectly plastic, with a stress-strain characteristic as shown: Say that we are drawing this material through two dies, something like this: What would happen ...

Plasticity (stress(strain)) interpolation in Abaqus

The stress-strain data for a plastic deformation is given in table.   I have two questions related to how that table is treated: How is data interpolated? Is it piecewise linear or something else? ...

Abaqus CAE - how to measure/calculate area of a certain threshold within the Visualisation module?

I have been using Abaqus CAE to model a CT-specimen being pulled apart, in order to observe the resultant plastic zone shape around the crack tip. To reduce computational cost, I have modelled a ...

Reasonable expected yield strength of A513 steel

I'm looking to build a fish-tank stand for a decently large fish tank (300 gal). I'm looking at building it out of A513 steel because that is easily available locally. However, I am having trouble ...

Why isn't von Mises criterion valid when compressive and tensile yield stresses differ?

For example here, it is mentioned: The von Mises criterion is NOT a valid yield (failure) criterion for materials with different yield stress values in tension and compression. I can't really ...

Why is local yielding considered the limiting case in context of buckling in Eurocode?

In Eurocode, when use buckling curves to calculate the maximum load that a compressive member can be subjected to before it risks buckling. Buckling curves are based on the Perry-Robertson formula. I'...

Buckling vs. Yielding Failure of Columns

As I have been working through examples of construction projects, I've noticed that in nearly every case of a structural column (sample size considers only homogeneous material columns, no composite ...

Why does the yield strength of steel go up if I reduce the thickness of the specimen?

When I look at the yield of one material then you find more than one yield for different thickness. why the yield changes with changing the thickness. is there an equation to prove this ?

Difference between 'plastic yielding' , 'plastic yield strength', plastic strength' and 'plastic stress'?

I am going through a literature where these terms are regularly used and I am confused are they different and if yes then what does each term mean? I also want to know relation of plastic strength of ...

Low-tech ways of assessing relative strength of a material (yield point)

I want to compare strength of a metal before and after heat treatment, to assess to effectiveness of that treatment. (See my previous question, Aluminium softened by brazing. How to harden?). ...
