Abstract

In this paper, the microstructure-based finite element modeling method is used in investigating the loading path dependence of formability of transformation induced plasticity (TRIP) steels. For this purpose, the effects of different loading path on the forming limit diagrams (FLD) of TRIP steels are qualitatively examined using the representative volume element (RVE) of a commercial TRIP800 steel. First, the modeling method was introduced, where a combined isotropic/kinematic hardening rule is adopted for the constituent phases in order to correctly describe the cyclic deformation behaviors of TRIP steels during the forming process with combined loading paths which may include the unloading between the two consecutive loadings. Material parameters for the constituent phases remained the same as those in the authors' previous study [ 1 ] except for some adjustments for the martensite phase due to the introduction of the new combined hardening rule. Based on the new material parameters and new hardening rule, the predicted deformation behaviors of the TRIP800 steel show quite similar qualitative trends to those reported in other experimental works. Pseudo-forming limit strain diagrams (Pseudo-FLD) for the TRIP800 steel were then obtained for various loading paths. The computational results show that, similar to other single phase materials, the TRIP800 steel shows very sensitive loading path dependence in the strain-based forming limit diagrams (strain-FLD), but does not in the stress-based forming limit diagrams (stress-FLD). The results also show that the phase transformation does not have significant effects on the FLD for the TRIP800 steel. From the observations in this study, the current modeling methods can be used in examining the qualitative trends of FLD of TRIP steels under different loading paths/prestrains.
