A multiphase mechanical model for Ti-6Al-4V: Application to the modeling of laser assisted processingComputational Material Science, 46(3):761-766
Resume: A multiphase model for Ti-6Al-4V is proposed. This material is widely used in industrial applications and so needs accurate behaviour modeling. Tests have been performed in the temperature range from 25 degrees C to 1020 degrees C and at strain rates between 10(-3) s(-1) and 1 s(-1). This allowed the identification of a multiphase mechanical model coupled with a metallurgical model. The behaviour of each phase is calibrated by solving an inverse problem including a phase transformation model and a mechanical model to simulate tests under thermomechanical loadings. A scale transition rule (beta-rule) is proposed in order to represent the redistribution of local stresses linked to the heterogeneity of plastic strain. Finally this model is applied to two laser assisted processes: direct laser fabrication and laser welding. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
