Modelling of the compaction phase during Hot Isostatic Pressing process at the mesoscopic scale

Abstract : During Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) of metal powder, power-law creep is the dominant mechanism during the densification process. However, the understanding of the global impact of the thermo-mechanical boundary conditions and of the powder granulometry on the microstructure obtained after this first mechanism is not straightforward. A finite element methodology based on the use of a level set framework coupled with a remeshing technique is proposed in order to model the viscoplastic deformation of powder particles during HIP at the mesoscopic scale thanks to a Representative Elementary Volume. The methodology consists in generating, in a finite element mesh, a sphere packing of particles by representing implicitly all particles by means of a limited set of level-set functions. Mesh adaptation is also performed at particle boundaries to describe properly the particles and to manage the discontinuity of the physical properties. Such 2D scale mesoscopic densification simulations are presented and discussed
