Relationship between local damage and macroscopic response of soft materials highly reinforced by monodispersed particles
DE FRANCQUEVILLE, Foucault; GILORMINI, Pierre; DIANI, Julie; VANDENBROUCKE, Aude
A rubberlike matrix highly filled with spherical micrometric glass beads is submitted to uniaxial tension tests until break. X-ray tomography imaging performed on the material while submitted to uniaxial tension reveals early debonding at the matrix/filler interfaces at the poles of the particles followed by void coalescence creating damage localization. The latter causes a downturn of the macroscopic stress-strain response. These phenomena are analyzed further with three-dimensional finite element simulations, where 64 spherical beads are distributed randomly in a periodic cell. A simple version of the Tvergaard-Hutchinson cohesive-zone model allows to reproduce all the experimental trends well. The effects of the three parameters involved are analyzed, and three different types of macroscopic behaviors are observed corresponding to three different microstructure damages. The value of the initial stiffness of the interface, limited by numerical convergence, has little effect on how the local damage evolves but has a significant impact on the overall macroscopic stress values. The local damage is strongly dependent on the critical strength and the separation failure displacement, and the adhesion energy may be considered as a resulting parameter of the two previous ones. The interfacial critical strength appears to have a significant impact on the damage initiation, either spread across the structure for low values, or localized for high values. Increasing the interface separation failure displacement delays the possible loss of adhesion to a higher strain and preserves the integrity of the composite material.

Comparison of the finite strain macroscopic behavior and local damage of a soft matrix highly reinforced by spherical or polyhedral particles

Motivated by the different uniaxial responses of two actual materials filled with either sifted glass beads or sifted glass grits, the influence of the fillers shape on the finite strain behavior of highly filled composites (>50%) is examined through micromechanical finite element simulations accounting for matrix/filler debonding with a cohesive-zone model. Three-dimensional matrix cells filled with 64 monosized spherical particles are compared to cells filled with the same number of monosized polyhedra. For this purpose, an original generation process was developed to obtain periodic cells with random dispersions of non-regular polyhedra. Finite element simulations of uniaxial tensile tests on the periodic cells allow studying the influence of the fillers shape on the macroscopic behavior and on the local damage at the matrix/filler interfaces. Actually, the presence of sharp edges and apexes for polyhedral particles seems to have a second order impact compared to the cohesive-zone parameters. The damage fields demonstrate the same trends for both particles shapes. The different behaviors observed on actual composites are rather due to different adhesion properties between fillers and matrix than to the shape of particles.
