Title:On shear flow localization with traction-controlled boundaries
Author(s):Shawki, Tarek G.
Subject(s):Shear Flow Localization
Traction-controlled Boundaries
Abstract:The interactive roles of inertia and material viscosity as regards the evolution of inhomogeneous plastic flow are analyzed. The analysis is presented in the context of the dynamic, one-dimensional simple shear of a thermo-viscoplastic material subjected to traction-controlled boundaries. Existence and uniqueness questions of an exact homogeneous solution for this initial boundary-value problem are investigated. The breakdown of the so-called quasi-static homogeneous solution is related to the onset of localization. We introduce a dimensionless number, called the deformation number, and denoted by RD, as the ratio of inertial to viscous stresses. Characterization of a given deformation as being dynamic is shown to be related to large values of RD instead of simply high rates of applied loading. A model problem is formulated in order to illustrate the basic features of solutions for this class of deformations. An exact solution is derived for the model problem as well as a solution based on matched asymptotic expansions. It is shown, based on the model problem and fully nonlinear finite difference solutions, that plastic deformation localizes within narrow bands in the neighborhood of the boundaries. The shear band thickness is inversely proportional to the square root of the deformation number. The role of material viscosity concerning the introduction of a length scale to dynamic deformations of rate-dependent solids is illustrated.
