Void behaviour due to internal pressure induced by temperature rise

  • X. J. Fan

In this paper, the governing equations for the ductile growth of an isolated void in a nonhardening material, due to the internal pressure induced by temperature rise, are derived. It is found that the enlargement of the void volume is enhanced by the elevation of the temperature. In the case of the temperature rise caused by the plastic dissipation, the void behaviour considering temperature effect can be determined by combining with heat conduction equation.
