Analysis of semi-solid response under rapid compression tests using multi-scale modelling and experiments
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Simulating semi-solid metal forming requires modelling semi-solid behaviour. However, such modelling is difficult because semi-solid behavior is thixotropic and depends on the liquid-solid spatial distribution within the material. In order to better understand and model relationships between microstructure and behavior, a model based on micromechanical approaches and homogenisation techniques is presented. This model is an extension of a previous model established in a pure viscoplastic framework to account for elasticity. Indeed, experimental load-displacement signals reveal the presence of an elastic-type response in the earlier stages of deformation when semi-solids are loaded under rapid compression. This elastic feature of the behaviour is attributed to the response of the porous solid skeleton saturated by incompressible liquid. A good quantitative agreement is found between the elastic-viscoplastic predicted response and the experimental data. More precisely, the strong initial rising part of the load-displacement curve, the peak load and the subsequent fall in load are well captured. The effect of solid fraction on mechanical response is in qualitative agreement with experiments.

Comparison between numerical simulation of semisolid ﬂow into a die using FORGE© and in situ visualization using a transparent sided die NEAG, Adriana; FAVIER, Véronique; BIGOT, Régis; ATKINSON, Helen Valerie (Elsevier, 2016)Semi-solid processing is a promising forming process for shaping metallic alloys in one shot. Numerical simulations are of great interest for optimizing the process. Generally, numerical simulation results are compared ...
Micromechanical modelling of the elastic-viscoplastic response of metallic alloys under rapid compression in the semi-solid state FAVIER, Véronique; ATKINSON, H. V. (Elsevier, 2011)Semi-solid processing is used commercially to produce a variety of components and it is therefore important to be able to model the die fill. Micromechanical modelling is one approach to this. Here we compare the micromechanical ...
ATKINSON, H. V.; FAVIER, Véronique (Springer Boston, 2016)In the various forms of semisolid processing such as thixoforming and thixoforging, the entry into the die occurs in a fraction of a second so it is the transient rheological behavior which governs the initial stages of ...
Micromechanical modeling if the interactions between the microstructure and the dissipative deformation mechanisms in steels under cyclic loading MAREAU, Charles; FAVIER, Véronique; WEBER, Bastien; GALTIER, André; BERVEILLER, Marcel (Elsevier, 2012)A micromechanical model is proposed to describe the interactions between the microstructure and the dissipative deformation mechanisms in ferritic steels under cyclic loading. The model aims at optimizing the microstructure ...
