Material libraries for texturized thin metal sheets in elastic range



An approach for the simulation of the elastic material responses using stochastic generation of material samples and a subdomain-based FEM simulation is presented. Both the single-grain geometries and the lattice orientations are stochastically simulated. This simulations can be used to build a Material Library of responses which must be computed only once for a given material. Furthermore, the Library can be used in a fast two-scale simulation avoiding any detailed computation in the microscale. In this contribution, the basic ideas of the computational algorithm are presented and some results of the material library for Steel DC01 are given. (© 2012 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
