Since introducing its new VDA tight radius testing capability with digital image correlation (DIC) in Winter 2021, the EWI Forming Center has conducted further research test applications of the test on a variety of high-strength materials.
A recent study evaluated test switch-off criteria and applied the results in finite element analysis (FEA). This work is covered in a paper by Applications Engineer Tom Feister, Application of VDA Tight Radius Bend Testing. You may view the paper – for free – by completing the form on this page.
