Abstract

ement method (FEM) is presented and implemented in a user material subroutine (UMAT) in the FEM code ABAQUS. Combined plastic flow and strain-induced PT from the highly disordered hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) sample to a superhard wurtzitic wBN is simulated within the rhenium gasket for pressures up to 50 GPa. The evolution of the fields of stresses and plastic strains, as well as the concentration of phases in a sample is obtained and discussed in detail. Stress-strain fields in a gasket and diamond are presented as well. An unexpected shape of the deformed sample with almost complete PT in the external part of the sample that penetrated the gasket was found. Obtained results demonstrated the difference between material and system behavior which are often confused by experimentalists. Thus, while plastic strain-induced PT may start (and end) at plastic straining slightly above 6.7 GPa, it is not visible below 12 GPa. It becomes detectable at 21 GPa and is not completed everywhere in a sample even at a maximum pressure of 50 GPa. Due to a strong gasket the gradient of pressure is much smaller than the gradient of plastic strain, and therefore the distribution of the high pressure phase is mostly determined by the plastic strain field instead of the pressure field. Possible misinterpretation of the experimental data and characterization of the PT is discussed. The developed model will allow computational design of experiments for synthesis of high-pressure phases. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
