    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 77-102, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.017.077
    Abstract In the framework of the piecewise homogeneous body model with the use of the three-dimensional geometrically non-linear exact equations of the theory of elasticity, the method for determination of the stress-strain state in the infinite body containing periodically located row of periodically curved fibers is developed. It is assumed that the midlines of the fibers are in the same plane. With respect to the location of the fibers according to each other the sinphase and antiphase curving cases are considered. Numerical results on the effect of the geometrical non-linearity to the values of the self balanced shear and normal stresses… More >


    A Novel Framework for Building Materials Knowledge Systems

    Surya R. Kalidindi1,2,3, Stephen R. Niezgoda1, Giacomo L,i1,1, Tony Fast1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 103-126, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.017.103
    Abstract This paper presents a novel mathematical framework for building a comprehensive materials knowledge system (MKS) to extract, store and recall hierarchical structure-property-processing linkages for a broad range of material systems. This new framework relies heavily on the use of computationally efficient FFT (Fast Fourier Transforms)-based algorithms for data-mining local structure-response-structure evolution linkages from large numerical datasets produced by established modelling strategies for microscale phenomena. Another salient feature of this new framework is that it facilitates flow of high fidelity information in both directions between the constituent length scales, and thereby offers a new strategy for concurrent multi-scale modelling of materials… More >

    Abstract A three-dimensional multiple-slip dislocation-density-based crystalline formulation, and specialized finite-element formulations were used to investigate dislocation-density evolution and crack behavior in single-packet lath martensite in high strength martensitic steels. The formulation is based on accounting for variant morphologies and orientations, and initial dislocations-densities that are uniquely inherent to martensitic microstructures. The effects of loading plane with respect to the orientation o the habit plane are investigated. Furthermore, the formulation was used to investigate single-packet microstructure mapped directly from SEM/EBSD images of maraging and ausformed martensitic steel alloys. This analysis underscores that shear pipe effects in martensitic steels, where the long direction… More >

    Abstract A common sample geometry used to study shear localization is the "tophat": an axi-symmetric sample with an upper "hat" portion and a lower "brim" portion. The gage section lies between the hat and brim. The gage section length is on the order of 0.9 mm with deformation imposed through a Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar system at maximum top-to-bottom velocity in the range of 10-25 m/sec. Detailed metallographic analysis has been performed on sections of the samples to quantify the topology and deformation state of the material after large deformation shear. These experiments performed with polycrystalline tantalum have been modeled using a… More >
