Dislocation Density Based Plasticity Model Coupled with Precipitate Model


Article Preview

A dislocation density based plasticity model is applied to two variants of steels. One is an austenitic (fcc) stainless steel with ordered precipitates and the other is a Ti-Nb microalloyed (bcc) steel. Precipitate distributions are measured and this information is combined with appropriate precipitate hardening models. The flow stress model is also calibrated for an nickel-based superalloy where it is combined with a model for precipitate growth.
