Abstract: In the presented work focus is put on the identification of material data using three-point bending cyclic test. Data gained during this test are used for creation of a Finite Element Model of such test. Simulations of cyclic tests are used to predict strain inhomogeneity. Additionally, two-dimensional Digital Image Correlation (DIC) analysis is utilized as a verification tool for the numerical simulation.
