Implementation of ABAQUS User Subroutines for Viscoplasticity of 316 Stainless Steel and Zircaloy-4

Jinxiong Zhou's picture

This paper describes the formulations for the viscoplasticity of metals based on the Chaboche and Delobelle model. The implementations of the viscoplastic models were detailed herein and then implemented via user subroutines for material models (UMAT) in ABAQUS. Two typical metals, i.e., 316 Stainless Steel and Zircaloy-4, were chosen as examples and their viscoplastic behaviors were captured. Numerical simulations are compared to reported experiments in order to validate the models and the UMAT codes. The typical viscoplastic behaviors of both metals, such as stress relaxation and creep, were captured well through the available experiments.

We publicize all the data and codes via the link https://github.com/XJTU-Zhou-group/ABAQUS_UMAT_316ss_Zr4.
