Austenitic stainless steel for separating safeguards
Development of an FEA-model for the simulation of impact tests in reference to material specific parameters
Austenitic stainless steels have a high potential for the use in separating safeguards of machine tools based on the TRIP (Transformation Induced Plasticity) effect. The problem with these materials is the high variance of the alloy composition. Therefore, the specific penetration resistance W D,spec varies significantly. The presented research analyses the impact of material specific parameters on the specific penetration resistance W D,spec and the FEA simulation of impact tests. The result of the project is the knowledge of the penetration resistance and hence the security (factor of safety) against penetration.
