Simulation of Environmentally-Assisted Material Degradation by a Thermodynamically Consistent Phase-Field Model

  • Environmentally-assisted material degradation involves mass transport and mechanical processes interacting in the material. A well-known example is hydrogen-induced stress-corrosion cracking. One major challenge within this scope is the quantification of the coupling mechanisms in question. The computational modeling of environmentally-assisted cracks is the key objective of this investigation and realised within the theory of gradient-extended dissipative continua with lengthscales. The modeling of sharp crack discontinuities is replaced by a diffusive crack model based on the introduction of a crack phase-field to maintain the evolution of complex crack topologies. Within a thermodynamical framework allowing for mechanical and mass transport processes the crack phasefield is capable to model crack initiation and propagation by the finite element method. As complex crack situations such as crack initiation, curvilinear crack patterns and crack branching are usually hard to realiseEnvironmentally-assisted material degradation involves mass transport and mechanical processes interacting in the material. A well-known example is hydrogen-induced stress-corrosion cracking. One major challenge within this scope is the quantification of the coupling mechanisms in question. The computational modeling of environmentally-assisted cracks is the key objective of this investigation and realised within the theory of gradient-extended dissipative continua with lengthscales. The modeling of sharp crack discontinuities is replaced by a diffusive crack model based on the introduction of a crack phase-field to maintain the evolution of complex crack topologies. Within a thermodynamical framework allowing for mechanical and mass transport processes the crack phasefield is capable to model crack initiation and propagation by the finite element method. As complex crack situations such as crack initiation, curvilinear crack patterns and crack branching are usually hard to realise with sharp crack models, they can be assessed without the requirement of a predefined crack path within this method. The numerical modeling of a showcase demonstrates a crack initiation as well as a crack propagation situation with respect to the determination of stress-intensity factors; a crack deviation situation with a curvilinear crack path is modeled by the introduction of a geometrical perturbation and a locally enhanced species concentration.zeige mehrzeige weniger
