Damage modelling in ductile metal has received a lot of attention in the last thirty years. Since 1969, many models have been proposed in the literature even though, in most of the cases, the experimental aspects related to the damage parameter evaluation have often been neglected. In this work the procedure to evaluate the damage parameters, for the continuum damage mechanics based model proposed by Bonora, is presented. Here, the ductile damage is experimentally measured in terms of progressive elastic modulus reduction as a function of strain measured in an hourglass-shaped specimen loaded in tension. The proposed technique, which is based on performing multiple, partial unloading, is reliable and relatively simple to implement. Additional tensile testing, performed with a round notch tensile bar, provides critical data that can be used to identify unequivocally the full damage parameter set and to assure their geometry transferability.

Abstract

Damage modelling in ductile metal has received a lot of attention in the last thirty years. Since 1969, many models have been proposed in the literature even though, in most of the cases, the experimental aspects related to the damage parameter evaluation have often been neglected. In this work the procedure to evaluate the damage parameters, for the continuum damage mechanics based model proposed by Bonora, is presented. Here, the ductile damage is experimentally measured in terms of progressive elastic modulus reduction as a function of strain measured in an hourglass-shaped specimen loaded in tension. The proposed technique, which is based on performing multiple, partial unloading, is reliable and relatively simple to implement. Additional tensile testing, performed with a round notch tensile bar, provides critical data that can be used to identify unequivocally the full damage parameter set and to assure their geometry transferability. The procedure presented here has been applied to identify the damage parameters for 20MnMoNi55 steel
