Modelling And Simulation The Cracking Of Green Metal Powder Body
2016 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
During the ejection stage of the powder metallurgy (PM) pressing process the elastic behaviour is important. Especially, if the in the powder compact is unloaded in a non-beneficially manner crack formation can occur. Experiments show a non-linear and also stress dependent elastic behaviour of green bodies. Calibrated against experimental data, a fracture model controlling the stress versus crack-width relationship is used. The softening rate of the fracture model is obtained from the corresponding rate of the dissipated energy. The model is implemented with a smeared crack approach in a finite element code and tested in simulation of a diametral compression testing. Results from simulations correlates well with experimental results. The smeared crack method combined with a cohesive fracture model is an interesting tool for predicting fracture in powder compacts.
