Fracture Load Prediction of Non-Linear Structural Steels through Calibration of the ASED Criterion

Abstract: In this work, the application of the Average Strain Energy Density (ASED) criterion for the estimation of failure loads in materials with nonlinear behavior containing U-shaped notches is presented. The ASED criterion was originally defined to predict failure in the presence of notches in materials with linear-elastic behavior. However, most structural materials (e.g., ferritic-pearlitic steels) can develop non-linear behavior (e.g., elastoplastic). In this sense, this work proposes to extend the use of the ASED criterion to materials that exhibit plasticity by a thorough calibration of their characteristic parameters, and the subsequent extrapolation of the liner-elastic formulation of the ASED criterion to non-linear situations. To validate this methodology, a wide range of structural steels (S275JR, S355J2, S460M, and S690Q) were used operating in the ductile-to-brittle transition range, with six different notch radii (0 mm, 0.15 mm, 0.25 mm, 0.50 mm, 1.0 mm, and 2.0 mm). The results obtained demonstrate that the proposed calibration of the ASED criterion allows for accurate predictions of failure loads. Therefore, it is shown that, for the notch radii analyzed in this work and for testing temperatures within the material ductile-to-brittle transition range, it is possible to extrapolate the ASED criterion to obtain estimates of failure loads in materials with U-shaped notches that exhibit ductile behavior.
