Hello,

I have been looking into an explicit state scenario where i am observing the deformation of my chassis structure.

 

I have seen that Ansys provides a default 4340 explicit material and I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience creating their own explicit properties by either failure/plasticity parameters such as Johnson cook, multilinear isotropic hardening or any other usable properties?

 

I realise that this would require lab test data for the specific part but there must be figures for a material that is this popular somewhere surely?

 

Any advice would be greatly appriciated

 

Many thanks

 

Ryan
