Accounting for porosity, time and temperature dependency in fracture mechanics concepts on polyvinylidene fluoride material

Abstract : The polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) under study is a semi-crystalline polymer that exhibits sensitivity of mechanical properties to both strain rate and temperature. Furthermore, this material is subjected to a significant cavitation during deformation. A comprehensive experimental database was built in order to analyze the fracture behaviour in the ductile to brittle transition domain. Tensile tests were carried out on smooth and notched specimens at temperatures ranging from −50 °C to 20 °C. The results were used to determine temperature-dependent material parameters by using the mechanics of porous media. The obtained set of parameters was validated on two kinds of pre-cracked specimens, by using the local approach of fracture mechanics. With the help of a finite element code, both global and local approaches of fracture mechanics were shown to complement one another: whereas classical formulae of J-integral fail to characterize crack initiation for this PVDF, the present methodology allowed the plot of J1C values with respect to temperature.
