On the Development of Material Constitutive Model for 45CrNiMoVA Ultra-High-Strength Steel
AbstractFor the implementation of simulations for large plastic deformation processes such as cutting and impact, the development of the constitutive models for describing accurately the dynamic plasticity and damage behaviors of materials plays a crucial role in the improvement of simulation accuracy. This paper focuses on the dynamic behaviors of 45CrNiMoVA ultra-high-strength torsion bar steel. According to investigation of the Split-Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) and Split-Hopkinson tensile bar (SHTB) tests at different strain rate and different temperatures, 45CrNiMoVA ultra-high-strength steel is characterized by strain hardening, strain-rate hardening and thermal softening effects. Based on the analysis on the mechanism of the experimental results and the limitation of classic Johnson-Cook (J-C) constitutive model, a modified J-C model by considering the phase transition at high temperature is established. The multi-objective optimization fitting method was used for fitting model parameters. Compared with the classic J-C constitutive model, the fitting accuracy of the modified J-C model significantly improved. In addition, finite element simulations for SHPB and SHTB based on the modified J-C model are conducted. The SHPB stress-strain curves and the fracture morphology of SHTB samples from simulations are in good agreement with those from tests. View Full-Text
