(Create a material test matrix based on accumulated data on forming processes)

Reliability of the FE simulation of a metal forming process relies on the accuracy of inputs. Material testing plans are usually made according to experience. 'Strategy' is offering material testing guidelines obtained from an innovative data-driven approach, allowing sophisticated material testing plans to be made towards a specified metal forming process.

'Strategy' is offering guidelines for uniaxial tensile tests to determine the flow stress of a workpiece material.
