New service from DYNAmore: free material cards for more than 60 steel grades

In cooperation with the Austrian steel manufacturer voestalpine, DYNAmore has created a material database for various steel grades. The material cards are now available for LS-DYNA users and can be requested from DYNAmore free of charge.

In cooperation with the Austrian steel manufacturer voestalpine, DYNAmore has created a material database for various steel grades. The material cards are now available for LS-DYNA users and can be requested from DYNAmore free of charge.


Some of the steel grades sold by voestalpine are now available for free use by LS-DYNA users. The data was provided in Excel format by voestalpine and converted by DYNAmore employees into the LS-DYNA keyword format. A total of more than 60 different types of steel are available. Among them are:

 

  • Mild Steels
  • High Strength Low Alloy Steels (LA or HSLA)
  • Bake Hardenable Steels (BH)
  • High Strength IF-Steels (IF)
  • Carbon manganese steels
  • Dual Phase Steels (DP)
  • Complex Phase Steels (CP)
  • Dual Phase Steels with improved formability
  • Martensitic Steels (MS)
  • Press hardening steels (phs)

The data is structured in subdirectories. The respective steel grades are distinguished between cold-rolled steels and hot-rolled steels. Furthermore, two unit systems MPa_ton_mm_s and GPa_kg_mm_ms are available. For each steel, there are two files in LS-DYNA keyword format:

- CR1-GI_DX52D-Z.dyn: Material card for LS-DYNA (each MAT_036: 3 R-values + yield curve)

- CR1-GI_DX52D-Z_ISO_12004-2_Transverse_1.00_mm.fld: Forming Limit Curve for postprocessing with LS-PrePost


DYNAmore GmbH makes the data available to its customers free of charge. Interested parties are welcome to contact DYNAmore at info@dynamore.de. All you need to do is sign an agreement to receive it.

 

DYNAmore would like to thank voestalpine for providing the data and is looking forward to future projects.
