Observation and numerical simulation of an elastic-plastic solid loaded by a spherical indenter
The observation and finite element simulation of Ti–6Al–4V loaded by a spherical indenter were compared. The contact radius at the maximum load was 40% of the indenter radius, which resulted in a high degree of plasticity induced beneath the indenter. The spherical impression profile predicted by the simulation was in agreement with that of the observation. The local curvature of the spherical impression was shown to vary with radial distance. The overall curvature change with radial distance...[Show more]
