Effect of crystal structures on deformation behaviour of materials using finite element methodAuthor(s): K.K.Pathak1, Chering Namgyal2, Sadhna Singh
This study presents the deformation analysis of crystalline materials considering three crystal structures viz. Fe (BCC), Co(HCP) and Ni(FCC). Deformation behaviour of these materials are modeled and analyzed using Finite Element Method considering identical billet upsetting on Abaqus software. The billet has beenmeshed with CAX4RT Elements. In this study both isotropic and anisotropic material properties have been considered. It is observed that anisotropy has dominant effect on FCC and BCC structures as compared to HCP.
