EWI Develops Superior Materials Bendability Test

January 29, 2021

While the VDA tight bend radius test is the standard in industry, it does not measure strain fracture limits. EWI has created a new bendability testing method that combines the VDA test with digital image correlation (DIC) to produce much more accurate results.

The experiments conducted to validate this new approach tested seven different advanced high strength steels. The results are discussed in VDA Tight Bend Radius Testing with Digital Image Correlation by EWI Applications Engineer Laura Zoller.
