A new internal variable constitutive model for the rheology of the mushy zone

INPG has developed a new internal variable constitutive model for the rheological behavior of the mushy zone that takes into account solid skeleton volume change and strain hardening for high solid fractions and small strains. The equations have been formulated such that they can be incorporated in SINTEF/INPG’s two-phase model.
