Plastic deformation induced microstructure evolution through gradient enhanced crystal plasticity based on a non-convex Helmholtz energy

Klusemann, Benjamin
Yalçınkaya, Tuncay
A gradient crystal plasticity model in the framework of continuum thermodynamics and rate variational formulation is presented for the description of plastic deformation patterning in a system with non-convex energetic hardening. The paper focuses on the extension of the 1D deformation patterning analysis of Yalcinkaya et al. (2011) to 2D for monotonic loading histories. Solution algorithm is based on the simultaneous solution of displacement and plastic slip fields, which have been considered as primary variables. The incorporation of non-convexity in the plastic slip potential in the Landau-Devonshire form makes the framework dual to phase field modeling approaches with a strong coupling between the deformation and the plastic slip fields. In the phase field modeling approaches the coupling is rather weak, i.e. fields do not have to be coupled as in the current approach based on the decomposition of the total strain. The numerical examples illustrate the intrinsic formation of (laminate type) microstructures and their evolution under mechanical loading together with the macroscopic hardening-softening-stress plateau response. The effect of different number of slip systems, loading rates and boundary conditions are investigated in detail.

Method for Dynamic Material Property Characterization of Soft-Tissue-Mimicking Isotropic Viscoelastic Materials Using Fractional Damping Models
Martin, Bryn A.; Kutluay, Umit; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (ASTM International, 2013-09-01)
Characterization of the mechanical properties of human-tissue-mimicking silicone elastomers is important for producing accurate tissue models for experimentation. However, the viscoelastic and frequency-dependent material properties of elastomers are difficult to quantify. We present a material characterization technique for a silicone elastomer used to mimic human soft tissue based on generalized-Maxwell-type material models with and without fractional dissipating mechanisms. The silicone specimens were pr...
Optical characteristics of Bi12SiO20 single crystals by spectroscopic ellipsometry
Isik, M.; Delice, S.; Nasser, H.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Darvishov, N. H.; Bagiev, V. E. (Elsevier BV, 2020-12-01)
Structural and optical characteristics of Bi12SiO20 single crystal grown by the Czochralski method were investigated by virtue of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements. XRD analysis indicated that the studied crystal possesses cubic structure with lattice parameters of a = 1.0107 nm. Spectral dependencies of several optical parameters like complex dielectric constant, refractive index, extinction and absorption coefficients were determined using ellipsometry experiments perform...
Plane strain analytical solutions for a functionally graded elastic-plastic pressurized tube
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-01)
Plane strain analytical solutions to functionally graded elastic and elastic-plastic pressurized tube problems are obtained in the framework of small deformation theory. The modulus of elasticity and the uniaxial yield limit of the tube material are assumed to vary radially according to two parametric parabolic forms. The analytical plastic model is based on Tresca's yield criterion, its associated flow rule and ideally plastic material behaviour. Elastic, partially plastic and fully plastic stress states a...
Mechanical behaviour of Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Informa UK Limited, 2003-08-01)
To understand the effect of a 'mesh-structured reinforcement' on the optical and mechanical properties of optomechanical composites, a unidirectional Al2O3 fibre-ZrO2 matrix minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite has been fabricated. By regular alignment of the minicomposites in the glass matrix as part of the 'mesh structure' a high degree of optical transparency is obtained in the composite; this transparency is proportional to its 'optical window' regions. The mesh structured rein...
Crystallization kinetics of fluorophosphate glasses .1. Effect of composition and hearing rate
Ozturk, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1997-05-15)
Crystallization behaviour of glasses from the system AlF3-MF2-Ba(PO3)(2) (M = Ca, Mg, Sr, Ba) have been studied using differential thermal analysis as a function of Ba(PO3)(3). The kinetic parameters for crystallization, namely, the activation energy, E frequency factor, v, and Avrami exponent, n, were determined. E,v and n decreased with increasing Ba(PO3)(2). Crystallization commenced at higher temperatures and the crystal growth mechanism changed from bulk to surface with increasing Ba(PO3)(2). X-ray dif...
