Finite Element Analyses of Elasto-Plastic Deformation in Pearlite Lamellar and Colony Structures
Elasto-plastic tensile deformations in pearlite lamellar and two-colony structures are studied by finite element analyses to investigate the effects of lamellar thickness ratio and difference of lamellae orientation of two colonies in pearlite microstructure. The results obtained from plastic strain distributions in lamellar and colony structures show that plastic deformation in cementite lamellar stabilized when ferrite lamellar is thicker than cementite lamellar thickness and plastic strain concentrates when the difference between cementite lamellar orientation in two colonies are larger than 45°.
