I am trying to figure out how to get the punch through force of an object. However, the data that I have pulled up have all contradicted each other.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically, How much force (in tons) is needed for an circular disc to be punched through Aluminum 7075.

What I have already came up with is:

P= (LTS)/2000

P=Press tonnage

L=circumference of circle

T=thickness

S=material strength in (ultimate tensile strength)

If anyone has any thoughts about this, could you please get back to me on this!

Thank you!
