Abstract

Dynamic pore collapse in porous materials is studied by analyzing the finite deformation of an elastic/viscoplastic spherical shell under impulsive pressure loading. Effects of dynamic loading rate, pore size, initial porosity, strain-i-ate sensitivity, strain hardening, thermal softening, and mass density of the matrix material on the pore collapse process are examined and results are compared with those from quasistatic analyses of both rate-independent and rate-dependent matrix materials. Dynamic (inertia) effects are found to be significant or even dominant in certain shock wave consolidation conditions. An approximate method is proposed to incorporate dynamic effects into quasistatic pore-collapse relations of viscoplastic matrix materials. Implications of results of current study are discussed in terms of understanding the processes of shock wave consolidation of powders.
