چکیده
Due to its attractive mechanical properties, aluminum 2024 is widely used in aircraft manufacturing industries, especially as fiber metal laminates, such as GLARE. In the present work, a series of experiments for different stress triaxialities are used to study the ductile damage of Al 2024 considering continuum damage mechanics (CDM). Stress triaxiality is produced using notched specimens. The main objective of the present study is to predict the local equivalent plastic strain to fracture and introducing a relation which describes the effect of stress triaxiality factor (TF) on it in the medium range of stress triaxiality. Hence, a nonlinear damage model is utilized for Al 2024 and its parameters are determined by an experimental/numerical/optimization procedure using tensile test on plain specimens. The experiments showed that for large notch specimens (Al-NL) and medium notch samples (Al-NM) fracture started from the center of the notch root of the specimens, whereas for small notched specimens (Al-NS) the failure initiated from the notch root surface. Finite element simulations are performed using the presented nonlinear damage model and are compared with the experimental data. Results show that the proposed damage model can predict the damage evolution for different stress triaxialities. © 2017 Politechnika Wrocławska
