Abstract

The mechanism of strain rate dependence on the Bauschinger effect in dualphase type high strength steel sheets is investigated and the influence of mesostructure differences on spring-back is estimated in this study. Compression-tensile tests at a strain rate from 0.007/s to 100/s is conducted. To differentiate between the multiphase structure-induced effect and the matrix properties, the same tests are also conducted for ferrite single phase steel. As a result, the Bauschinger effect on dual phase steel is not associated with the matrix properties independently. Moreover, it is revealed that a multiphase structure-induced effect acts a dominant function for deformation characteristics through experiments and micro observations. Keywords: sheet metal forming, Bauschinger effect, strain rate dependence, high strength steel, dual phase, multiscale analysis, mesoscale structure.
