Effects of Thermal Deformation in Constrained Sheet Metal

The purpose of this project is to understand the expansion of a piece of aluminum sheet metal, which is undergoing a thermal deformation, and is constrained along all four sides to compare it to the behavior of models in engineering software. A literature review has been conducted and materials have been purchased to create a physical model to test. Thus far, it seems that the engineering software, ANSYS and ABAQUS, do not accurately model the thermal deformation of the plate. The next step will to be to compare the physical experiment to the software.
