An Exact Consistent Tangent Stiffness Matrix for a Second Gradient Model for Porous Plastic Solids: Derivation and Assessment

by   Koffi Enakoutsa, et al.

It is well known that the use of a consistent tangent stiffness matrix is critical to obtain quadratic convergence of the global Newton iterations in the finite element simulations of problems involving elasto-plastic deformation of metals, especially for large scale metallic structure problems. In this paper we derive an exact consistent stiffness matrix for a porous material model, the GLPD model developed by Gologanu, Leblond, Perrin, and Devaux for ductile fracture for porous metals based on generalized continuum mechanics assumptions. Full expressions for the derivatives of the Cauchy stress tensor and the generalized moments stress tensor the model involved are provided. The effectiveness and robustness of the proposed tangent stiffness moduli are assessed by applying the formulation in the finite element simulations of ductile fracture problems. Comparisons between the performance our stiffness matrix and the standard ones are also provided.
