A Study on the Coupled Thermal and Damage Effects in Deforming Solids
Mechanical degradation and ductile failure in metal forming operations can be successfully modelled using fully coupled damage models. In addition, it has been largely reported in the literature that temperature variations affect material behaviour, especially thermal softening. This paper presents a numerical discussion of the coupled effects between ductile damage and temperature evolution based on the simulation of tensile tests of notched specimens.
