Theoretical modeling and numerical study of coalescence of cavities in porous ductile viscoplastic solids
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 333 (2005) no. 7, pp. 542-549.

One presents a model for coalescence of cavities in porous ductile viscoplastic solids. The representative volume element considered is schematized as a ‘sandwich’ consisting of a central porous layer surrounded by two external sound layers, the stress and strain rate tensors being considered as homogeneous in each layer. The sound layers obey the classical Norton model and the porous one some specific homogenized model for porous viscoplastic solids accounting for void shape. An important feature is the description of the peculiar evolution of this shape during coalescence. The model predictions are successfully compared to the results of some finite element micromechanical simulations.

On présente un modèle pour la coalescence des cavités dans les solides poreux ductiles viscoplastiques. Le volume représentatif élémentaire considéré est schématisé par un ‘sandwich’ comprenant une couche centrale poreuse entourée de deux couches externes saines, les tenseurs de contrainte et de taux de déformation étant considérés comme homogènes dans chaque couche. Les couches saines obéissent au modèle classique de Norton et la couche poreuse à un modèle homogénéisé spécifique pour les matériaux poreux viscoplastiques prenant en compte la forme des cavités. Un élément important est la description de l'évolution particulière de cette forme pendant la coalescence. Les prédictions du modèle sont comparées avec succès aux résultats de simulations micromécaniques par éléments finis.
