Modeling of dislocation-grain boundary interactions in a strain gradient crystal plasticity framework

Yalçınkaya, Tuncay
This paper focuses on the continuum scale modeling of dislocation-grain boundary interactions and enriches a particular strain gradient crystal plasticity formulation (convex counter-part of Yal double dagger inkaya et al., J Mech Phys Solids 59:1-17, 2011; Int J Solids Struct 49:2625-2636, 2012) by incorporating explicitly the effect of grain boundaries on the plastic slip evolution. Within the framework of continuum thermodynamics, a consistent extension of the model is presented and a potential type non-dissipative grain boundary description in terms of grain boundary Burgers tensor (see e.g. Gurtin, J Mech Phys Solids 56:640-662, 2008) is proposed. A fully coupled finite element solution algorithm is built-up in which both the displacement and plastic slips are considered as primary variables. For the treatment of grain boundaries within the solution algorithm, an interface element is formulated. The proposed formulation is capable of capturing the effect of misorientation of neighboring grains and the orientation of the grain boundaries on slip evolution in a natural way, as demonstrated by bicrystal specimen examples.


A phase-field model for fracture of unidirectional fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites
Denli, Funda Aksu; Gultekin, Osman; Holzapfel, Gerhard A.; Dal, Hüsnü (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-04-01)
This study presents a crack phase-field approach for anisotropic continua to model, in particular, fracture of fiber-reinforced matrix composites. Starting with the variational formulation of the multi-field problem of fracture in terms of the deformation and the crack phase fields, the governing equations feature the evolution of the anisotropic crack phase-field and the balance of linear momentum, presented for finite and small strains. A recently proposed energy-based anisotropic failure criterion is inc...
Forced vibrations of functionally graded annular and circular plates by domain-boundary element method
Eshraghi, Iman; Dağ, Serkan (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
Axi-symmetric dynamic response of functionally graded circular and annular Mindlin plates with through-the-thickness variations of physical properties is investigated by a new domain-boundary element formulation. Three governing partial differential equations of motion of the inhomogeneous plate are converted to integral equations by utilizing the static fundamental solutions of the displacement components. These integral equations are then spatially discretized by dividing the entire domain into a number o...
A new boundary element formulation for wave load analysis
Yalcin, O. Fatih; Mengi, Yalcin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-10-01)
A new boundary element (BEM) formulation is proposed for wave load analysis of submerged or floating bodies. The presented formulation, through establishing an impedance relation, permits the evaluation of the hydrodynamic coefficients (added mass and damping coefficients) and the coefficients of wave exciting forces systematically in terms of system matrices of BEM without solving any special problem, such as, unit velocity or unit excitation problem. It also eliminates the need for scattering analysis in ...
Computational modeling of passive myocardium
Göktepe, Serdar; Wong, Jonathan; Kuhl, Ellen (Wiley, 2011-01-01)
This work deals with the computational modeling of passive myocardial tissue within the framework ofmixed, non-linear finite element methods. We consider a recently proposed, convex, anisotropic hyperelastic model that accounts for the locally orthotropic micro-structure of cardiac muscle. A coordinate-free representation of anisotropy is incorporated through physically relevant invariants of the Cauchy-Green deformation tensors and structural tensors of the corresponding material symmetry group. This model...
Intelligent analysis of chaos roughness in regularity of walk for a two legged robot
Kaygisiz, BH; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
We describe in this paper a new approach to the identification of the chaotic boundaries of regular (periodic and quasiperiodic) regions in nonlinear systems, using cell mapping equipped with measures of fractal dimension and rough sets. The proposed fractal-rough set approach considers a state space divided into cells where cell trajectories are determined using cell to cell mapping technique. All image cells in the state space, equipped with their individual fractal dimension are then classified as being ...
