Abstract

Summary Surface ploughing of a rigid-plastic semi-infinite body by a rigid pyramidal indenter is modelled by using a velocity field calculated by minimizing the dissipated power. The theoretical predictions are compared with the results of simulation tests using a model material. Good agreement is found for the tangential force, but the prediction of the flow pattern is less satisfactory. A simplified version of this model gives good results for forces and geometry when compared with tests on a low carbon steel.
