Numerical Simulation of Dynamic Tensile Extrusion Test of OFHC Copper
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015

The dynamic tensile extrusion (DTE) test offers unique possibility to probe material response under very large plastic strain, high strain rate and temperature to support constitutive modelling development. From the computational point of view, the DTE test is particularly challenging and a number of issues need to be assessed before proceeding with material modelling verification. In this work, an extensive and detailed computational work was carried out in order to provide the guidelines for accurate simulation of DTE test. Two constitutive models, the first phenomenological the latter physically-based, were used to simulated the behavior of fully annealed OFHC copper in dynamic extrusion at different velocities. Material models parameters were calibrated using uniaxial test data at different strain rates and temperatures. The number, size and shape of the ejected fragments at different velocity were used as validation metrics for the selected constitutive models. Results indicate that material behavior under dynamic extrusion can be accurately predicted limiting the influence of numerical parameters not related to the constitutive model under investigation. The physically based modelling allows a more accurate prediction of the material response and the possibility to incorporate microstructure evolution processes, such as dynamic recrystallization, which seems to control the response of OFHC copper in DTE tests at higher velocity.
