Temperature Dependent Hardening Stress Update

Computes the stress as a function of temperature and plastic strain from user-supplied hardening functions. This class can be used in conjunction with other creep and plasticity materials for more complex simulations

Description

In this numerical approach, a trial stress is calculated at the start of each simulation time increment; the trial stress calculation assumed all of the new strain increment is elastic strain: (1)

The algorithms checks to see if the trial stress state is outside of the yield surface, as shown in the figure to the right. If the stress state is outside of the yield surface, the algorithm recomputes the scalar effective inelastic strain required to return the stress state to the yield surface. This approach is given the name Radial Return because the yield surface used is the von Mises yield surface: in the devitoric stress space , this yield surface has the shape of a circle, and the scalar inelastic strain is assumed to always be directed at the circle center.

Recompute Iterations on the Effective Plastic Strain Increment

The recompute radial return materials each individually calculate, using the Newton Method, the amount of effective inelastic strain required to return the stress state to the yield surface. (2) where the change in the iterative effective inelastic strain is defined as the yield surface over the derivative of the yield surface with respect to the inelastic strain increment.

Isotropic Plasticity

TemperatureDependentHardeningStressUpdate is formulated in the same manner as IsotropicPlasticityStressUpdate such that the effective plastic strain increment has the form (3) where is the isotropic shear modulus, is the scalar von Mises trial stress, is the yield stress, is the hardening function, and is the derivative of the hardening function with respect to the trial stress.

Temperature Dependent Hardening

The temperature dependence in Eq. 3 is captured in the hardening function and the hardening function derivative. (4) where is the relative temperature fraction within the lower and upper temperature bounds of the current piecewise function section, is the index of the lower temperature bound and its corresponding hardening function, and is the upper temperature bound and hardening function index, and and are the current and old effective strain increments, respectively. The relative temperature fraction is defined as (5) where is the current temperature, and and are the same indices as defined for Eq. 4. The value is used in Eq. 4 to interpolate the hardening values.

This class, TemperatureDependentHardeningStressUpdate, calculates an effective trial stress, an effective scalar plastic strain increment, and the derivative of the scalar effective plastic strain increment; these values are passed to the RadialReturnStressUpdate to compute the radial return stress increment. The plastic strain as a stateful material property.
