Anisotropic fracture criteria for a dual-phase steel
2014 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The main objective of this work is to examine the use of anisotropic fracture criteria in order to predict fracture in dual-phase steel. The introduction of a material directional function into the fracture criterion was used in order to account for anisotropy observed in experiments. Selected fracture criteria were fist calibrated by ordinary tensile and in-plane shear tests using specimens cut in three material directions. In order to validate the performance, two types of validation tests were conducted. First, plane strain (notched tensile) tests were carried out in three material directions. Second, Nakajima tests with a waist of 130 mm were conducted, also in three material directions. The fit to the calibration tests was improved with all material directional functions compared to the isotropic criterion. Overall best performance was achieved when a material direction function based on the structural tensors was introduced.
