An Approach for Modeling Transformation Plasticity Using a Phase Field Model
In this paper, an approach for modeling transformation plasticity using a phase field model is presented. A conventional formula is utilized to represent the strain due to transformation plasticity as well as thermal expansion and transformation dilatation. A phase-field variable is introduced to express the state of phase in material instead of volume fraction, and numerical simulations under simplified conditions are demonstrated. As a result, the strain induced by phase transformation is suitably regenerated, and qualitatively appropriate temperature-strain curves are obtained. In addition, the effect of each parameter is investigated, and various dependencies, such as transformation temperature and stress, on the induced strain are demonstrated. It is then concluded that the results indicate the applicability of the presented model for practical use by adjusting the parameters.
