Abstract

Mesovolume deformation of aluminum-alumina metal-matrix composite is investigated within the plane-strain formulation. Numerical solutions were performed in terms of Lagrangian variables using the finite-difference method. Hierarchical simulation presumes the use of different models for describing a mechanical behaviour of the plastic metal matrix and brittle ceramic inclusions: elasto-plastic formulation with the strain hardening and a cracking model using a fracture criterion of Huber type, respectively. The criterion takes into account the difference in critical values for different local stress-strain states: tension and compression. It has been shown that the composite mesovolume exhibits complex mechanical behaviour controlled by both shear band formation in the matrix and cracking of inclusions. The computational results have been analysed in details and compared with those experimentally observed.
