Primary Creep Under Nonconstant Load
Application ID: 12399
In this model example, you will study the creep behavior of material under non-constant loading. You will model the primary creep using a Norton–Bailey law and study the difference between the time hardening and the strain hardening methods available in COMSOL Multiphysics.
The model is taken from NAFEMS Understanding Non-Linear Finite Analysis Through Illustrative Benchmarks. The load consist of a uniaxial and a biaxial stepped load. The step in the load occurs at after a half of the full study time. The value of interest is the creep strain variation along the time. The computed solutions are compared with analytical solution given in the reference.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Nonlinear Structural Materials Module and
- either the MEMS Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
