Abstract. This second part of the paper is focused on double-action radial extrusion testing and modelling to characterize material formability and failure in the bulk-to-sheet material flow transitions that are commonly found in metal forming. Results show that three-dimensional to plane-stress evolutions at the radially extruded flanges lead to different modes of fracture (by tension and by shear) that may or may not be preceded by necking. The use of double-action radial extrusion as a formability test also reveals adequate to characterize the failure limits of very ductile metallic materials, which cannot be easily determined by conventional upset compression tests, and to facilitate the identification of the instant of cracking and of the corresponding fracture strains by combination of the force vs. time evolutions with the in-plane strains obtained from digital image correlation.
