Abstract

The biaxial compaction of a square array of circular cylinders is studied using slip-line field, upper bound and finite element methods. Densification is assumed to occur by plastic deformation at the contacts. It is found that contact-contact interaction has a softening effect on the local indentation pressure at each contact. The yield surfaces resulting from hydrostatic and closed-die compaction are constructed at various stages of densification: the size and shape of the yield surface depend upon the loading history and upon the relative density of the compact. The finite element predictions suggest the formation of a vertex at the loading point for the entire densification process in the case of isostatic compaction. On the other hand, a vertex at the loading point is formed only for a relative density D less than or equal to 0.85 in the case of closed-die compaction. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
