Numerical Simulation of the Portevin – Le Chatelier Effect in Various Material and at Different Scales
The Portevin Le Chatelier (PLC) effect appears in many metallic materials at different temperatures. Some numerical simulations of this effect for different alloys (aluminium, steel, nickel based superalloy) are presented in this article. The mechanical model remain the same for all studied materials but the behavior parameters and identification methods differ. The scale at which this effect is investigated also varies from the microstructure to aeronautic components.
