Several studies have been devoted to the identification and modelling of material damage in different forming processes. The aim of this work is to investigate the commonly used local approach models when applied over a wide temperature range. The models investigated include: the Rice-Tracey model, the Gurson model and its derivatives, and the Rousselier model. In the first section the different techniques used to determine the evolution of material damage are discussed. In-situ tensile tests in a Scanning Electron Microscope were used to identify the origin of the appearance of micro-voids as well as their shape. For the 42CrMo4 steel, Magnesium sulphide inclusions are destroyed, leaving room for elliptical voids. A different mechanism is observed in the 100Cr6 steel in which spherical cavities appear in the ferrite phase. In addition, the evolution of the strain fields is determinate using image correlation software (Correli_Q4). The aim of the second part of this work is to propose changes to the porosity functions of the materials as a function of the strain, degree of triaxiality and temperature. These functions are determined by image analysis of axisymmetrically notched specimens previously deformed under various conditions. The proposed functions are used to extend the above models mentioned above to a wide range of temperatures and strain rates.
