Cranes, excavators, and bulldozers are indestructible helpers in bridge, road, and house construction. They are made predominantly of steel, because steel is the only material that can stand up to the challenges in this sector.
As a part of an EU-funded project, a new material model has been developed for the PAM-STAMP and LS-DYNA software programs that better reflects the outstanding forming characteristics of the Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH HSD® steel than conventional models do.
How customized testing methods help with material selection.
Characteristics play a crucial role during component development. Characteristics of standardized test specimens are often used as input data during process optimization and component development.
