Evaluation of Gurson yield function dependencies through large-scale void growth simulations

Numerical simulation of void growth from thousands of randomly distributed particles is used to assess the functional dependence of the Gurson model. Shock loading of the model region followed by a ramped pressure release creates a smoothly varying velocity field in which the void growth is inertially stabilized. The pressure, effective stress, and void fraction are obtained from the simulation for comparison with the Gurson model. The results show that the pressure-void fraction relation from the model reasonably follows the simulation data, but the numerical data exhibit significantly greater void fraction dependence on the effective stress than the Gurson model.
