Abstract

Approximate constitutive equations are proposed for use in the analysis of the rate-dependent deformation of metals at temperatures in excess of a homologous temperature of 0.5. The constitutive equations are formulated within the scope of some recent theories of elastoviscoplasticity with internal variables, but employ only a single scalar internal variable representing an isotropic resistance to plastic flow offered by the internal microstructural state of the material. The special constitutive euqations incorporate strain hardening of the Voce type, and account for the effects of the prior histories of strain rate and temperature undergone by the material. These equations, however, do not represent the important effects of static recovery or of static and dynamic recrystallization.
