A microstructure-based three-scale homogenization model for predicting the elasto-viscoplastic behavior of duplex stainless steels

Abstract

A new microstructure-informed three-scale homogenization scheme for elasto-viscoplastic heterogeneous materials is developed. It is applied to predict the mechanical behavior cast duplex austenitic-ferritic (AF) steels, which are widely used in primary loop of pressurized water reactors (PWR). At the first scale (microscale), the elasto-viscoplastic behavior of single crystals for both phases is modeled using linear elasticity and a viscoplastic crystal plasticity model. An "affine" type formulation based on the first moments of stresses is applied to the inelastic non-linear part of the deformation. Then, at the second scale (mesoscale), an EBSD-informed two-phase austenite/ferrite laminate structure (LS) model is developed with {110}-type habit planes (HP) in ferrite and a Kurdjumov-Sachs orientation relationship (KS-OR) between both phases. At the third scale (macroscale), the model considers a single ferritic primary grain as an aggregate of spherical two-phase laminate structure domains corresponding to the 24 KS-OR variants. The elastoviscoplastic self-consistent scheme (EVPSC) is used through the Translated Fields (TF) method to obtain the effective behavior at this scale. The TF-EVPSC scheme is also used for an ensemble of primary ferritic grains to identify materials parameters from experimental tensile curves corresponding to as received and aged specimen. From EBSD measurements, the crystallographic data are thoroughly analyzed to physically feed the three-scale model. The results are discussed in terms of stress/strain responses in ferrite and austenite, which are correlated to the different KS-OR variants and HP orientations. The effect of primary ferritic grain crystallographic orientation and aging is also studied regarding monotonic and cyclic tests to study the possible origins of backstress in this material.
