Stress Distribution in a Wedge Indenter

AbstractPlasticity analysis for orthogonal wedge indentation of plastic rigid material suggests that the faces of the wedge will be subjected to uniformly distributed pressure and tangential stress over the copycat length. In the present work the stress distribution at the tip of an infinitely deep wedge is obtained when the wedge is subjected to such a stress distribution. The problem simulates the industrial scoring process for the manufacturing of easy open can tops. The solution is obtained in integral form using a method proposed by Tranter, ethic is based on the application of Mellin integral Transform.
