Simulation numérique du procédé de rivetage auto-poinçonneur et étude expérimentale : application à un assemblage multi-matériaux polymère-acier issu de l’industrie automobile

Abstract : This thesis work is dealing with the issue of multi-material polymer-steel joining. Within a large-scale automotive environment, self-piercing riveting is the proposed joining technique to tackle the industrial challenge. Firstly, the feasibility of the technique is studied by investigating the influence of the riveting velocity and the sheet holder load on the geometrical characteristics of the riveted joint and the mechanical strength. Thus, it turns out that the increase in riveting velocity has a favorable effect: the joint strength in pure tension mode increases by +10% in agreement with the increase in mechanical anchoring. However, the increase of the sheet holder load has an unfavorable effect: the joint strength in cross tension and in shear modes decreases by -6.6%. Subsequently, an axisymmetrical 20 numerical model has been created enabling the simulation of the riveting operation. The effective mechanical properties of the composite material are estimated by a homogenization method while the mechanical behavior of the steel material is managed through an elastic-plastic model with damage. Compared with a cross section resulting from an experimental test, the simulation carried out under Abaqus 6.10-1® demonstrates being able to correctly predict the deformations, the anchoring value more particularly. Finally, a 30 numerical model has been developed and allows the simulation of destructive and asymmetrical loadings. The joint strength and the macroscopic deformations estimated are in good agreement with the experimental results, especially when taking into account the local damage of the composite laver.
