Abstract

This paper presents the fracture criterion of metal powder compact and simulation of the crack initiation and propagation during cold compaction process. Based on the fracture criterion of rock in compression, a displacement-based finite element model has been developed to analyze fracture initiation and crack growth in iron powder compact. Estimation of fracture toughness variation with relative density is established in order to provide the fracture parameter as compaction proceeds. A finite element model with adaptive remeshing technique is used to accommodate changes in geometry during the compaction and fracture process. Friction between crack faces is modelled using the six-node isoparametric interface elements. The shear stress and relative density distributions of the iron compact with predicted crack growth are presented, where the effects of different loading conditions are presented for comparison purposes.
