Workshop - International Seminar on Metal Plasticity

Sapienza - Università di Roma, Rome, Italy
June 2017

Seminar Chairs:
Dr Marco Rossi - Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy
Dr Sam Coppieters - KU Leuven, Belgium
Dr Luca Cortese - Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy

Plasticity is involved in many industrial engineering applications; nonetheless, accurate description of the plastic material behaviour of metals is still a challenge for engineers and researchers.

Finite Element Analysis is commonly used to study plasticity, however, in order to have reliable predictions, advanced constitutive models are required to reproduce the complexity of different phenomena including hardening, anisotropy, damage, etc. Such advanced plasticity models often require a dedicated numerical implementation and a complex experimental calibration procedure which sometimes limits their application to the academic environment. The aim of this international seminar is to promote a platform for people working in the field of metal plasticity, to discuss the state-of-the-art, the current research and future developments.

Moreover, the intent is to strengthen the cross-fertilization between theoretical material modelling, computational and experimental plasticity and the development of industrial applications
