Numerical simulation of material damage for structural steels S235JR and S355J2G3
Pawel G. Kossakowski and Wiktor Wciślik

    The paper discusses numerical analysis of tensile notched specimens with the use of Gurson – Tvergaard – Needleman (GTN) material model. The analysis concerned S235JR and S355J2G3 steel grades, subjected to medium stress state triaxiality ratio, amounting 0.739. A complete procedure for FEM model preparation was described, paying special attention to the issue of determining material constants in the GTN model. An example of critical void volume fraction (fc) experimental determination procedure was presented. Finally, the results of numerical analyses were discussed, indicating the differences between steel grades under investigation.
