Recent advances in the modelling of metals encompass modelling of metals structural inhomogeneity, damage, porosity, twinning/untwining and non-local and second order effects. This presentation is focused on modelling the void growth in ductile fractures. The growth and coalescence of microscopic voids are the main mechanisms in ductile fracture of bulk metallic parts. In sheet metals, ductile fracture is preceded by necking during which existing voids do not have significant growth. However, necking is highly sensitive to plastic flow direction which in turn is sensitive to the presence of voids. Also, under biaxial strain loading, the final fracture in the necking region is still controlled by void growth; hence an accurate fracture prediction is crucial for crash simulations. Finally, in super-plastic sheet forming, void growth and coalescence may precede or accompany necking. Therefore, there is as increasing interest in modelling of voids in the sheet metals. As an application, we show how the predictions of some forming limit curves (FLCs) can be affected by accurate simulation of voids growth.
