Compute Axisymmetric 1D Finite Strain

Compute a strain increment and rotation increment for finite strains in an axisymmetric 1D problem

Description

The material ComputeAxisymmetric1DFiniteStrain calculates the finite strain for 1D Axisymmetric systems and is intended for use with Generalized Plane Strain simulations. This material assumes symmetry about the -axis. This 'strain calculator' material computes the strain within the cylindrical coordinate system and relies on the specialized Axisymmetric RZ kernel to handle the stress divergence calcuation.

warning:Symmetry Assumed About the -axis

The axis of symmetry must lie along the -axis in a cylindrical coordinate system. This symmetry orientation is required for the calculation of the residual and of the jacobian. See StressDivergenceRZTensors for the residual equation and the germane discussion.

1D Axisymmetric Strain Formulation

The axisymmetric model uses the cylindrical coordinates, , , and , where the linear section formed by the axis is rotated about the axis in the direction. The incremental deformation gradient for the 1D axisymmetric system is defined as (1) where is the Rank-2 identity tensor, and the deformation gradient, , and the old deformation gradient, , are given as (2) Note that uses the values of the strain expressions from the previous time step. The components of the tensors in Eq. (2) are given as (3) where is a prescribed out-of-plane strain value: this strain value can be given either as a scalar variable or a nonlinear variable. The Generalized Plane Strain problems use scalar variables. The value of the strain depends on the displacement and position in the radial direction.

note:Notation Order Change

The axisymmetric system changes the order of the displacement vector from , usually seen in textbooks, to . Take care to follow this convention in your input files and when adding eigenstrains or extra stresses.

Once the incremental deformation gradient (Eq. (1)) is calculated for the 1D geometry, the deformation gradient is passed to the strain and rotation methods used by default 3D Cartesian simulations, as described in the Finite Strain Class documentation.

Example Input File

note:Use RZ Coordinate Type

The coordinate type in the Problem block of the input file must be set to COORD_TYPE = RZ.

The common use of the ComputeAxisymmetric1DFiniteStrain class is with the Generalized Plane Strain system; this type of simulation uses the scalar strain variables

[./strain]
  type = ComputeAxisymmetric1DFiniteStrain
  eigenstrain_names = eigenstrain
  scalar_out_of_plane_strain = scalar_strain_yy
[../]
(modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/1D_axisymmetric/axisymm_gps_finite.i)

which uses a scalar variable for the coupled out-of-plane strain; the arguement for the scalar_out_of_plane_strain parameter is the name of the scalar strain variable:

[./scalar_strain_yy]
  order = FIRST
  family = SCALAR
[../]
(modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/1D_axisymmetric/axisymm_gps_finite.i)
