Abstract

In this study, a new method is proposed to determine limit strains at the onset of localized necking for ductile materials that show post-uniform elongations. The new method is first applied for AA 5754-O using the ISO 12004-2 forming limit diagram determination standard. The method is also applied for ductile materials of 7114 steel, 304 stainless steel, and CuZn37 brass and finally for AA 2024-T4 having brittle fracture behavior. The results indicate that the new proposed method is quite successful, easy, and accurate for ductile materials that show post-uniform elongations.
