Percolation-Relaxation Model with Critical Damage for Describing the Dynamic Tensile Spall of Ductile Metals
In the framework of percolation theory, a simple void-coalescence model combined with the constitutive relations for describing the stress relaxation and material softening during the void-coalescence process, name as the percolation-relaxation (P-R) model, is proposed to describe the dynamic tensile spallation of ductile metals. A critical damage is introduced and coupled into the model to identify the onset of the void coalescence. Mesoscopically, the critical damage corresponds to the critical intervoid ligament distance (ILD), indicating the start of transition from the void-growth to the void-coalescence.
