Samenvatting

The entire process of ductile failure is modelled, from the initiation of damage to crack propagation. The microscopic material degradation mechanisms which trigger cracks are modelled by a softening elastoplastic behaviour. Mesh objectivity and length scale effects are accounted for by a gradient enhancement. The two governing partial differential equations, i.e. equilibrium and a nonlocal averaging equation, are solved in a staggered manner, which renders a very simple implementation in existing finite element codes. Adaptive remeshing is used to optimise the use of finite elements, so that finer elements are used in the regions of high strain localisation. Upon complete material failure cracks are introduced via remeshing. A number of metal forming simulations are shown which illustrate the main model features.
