With the results, this study aimed to perform a numerical simulation using the finite element software ABAQUS and the experimental results of three point bending test using Simarouba amara Aubl wood specie test proofs. Two analysis were performed, considering wood as elastoplastic material in the first and the second, considering only elastic material. From stress-strain diagrams results, it was observed the evaluation of modulus of elasticity on static bending test is not valid due to material non-linearity. A constitutive model was proposed for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie and for evaluation of modulus of elasticity on static bending. It was performed a comparative analysis between experimental results and the proposed constitutive model. These models showed their efficiency when evaluated the normal stress on proof test with demonstrated accuracy, allowing its use by wood structures designers.

Introduction Wood is widely used as the main material in civil construction due its thermal performance and esthetics [1]. Among ordinary materials of civil construction, wood can be highlighted, a renewable resource with low energy consumption in its production [2, 3]. The knowledge of physical and mechanical properties leads to an efficient use of material, mainly in structural design. Then, wood must be properly analyzed by its great variability of properties when compared with other materials and large variety of wood species [4]. The relations between stress and strain and elastic parameters of wood are very important for the mathematical modeling of its structural behavior [5]. * Corresponding author: alchristoforo@gmail.com (André Luis Christoforo) Published online at https://www.eduzhai.net Copyright © 2018 The Author(s).

Mechanical tests are applied to simulate wood in real use as conventional strength on static bending test and compressive and tensile strength parallel to the grain. It must be pointed out that exotic wood species produced in Brazil presents different physical and mechanical properties when compared with properties in native country of wood specie [6, 7]. In the mechanical characterization of woods it is common the use of displacement parameter to evaluate the loading cycle to determine the conventional modulus of elasticity on static bending test [8]. Then, it is important to know if this displacement parameters are compatible with the procedure described in the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9]. Other authors [10-12] studied the modulus of elasticity in wood. Among them, Chahud [12] proposed a new evaluation of normal stress on static bending test along the grain, considering the plastic regime in wood and comparing the moduli of elasticity in tension, compression and on static bending test. Considering the importance of elasticity modulus in wood structures design, the form of its analysis and determination International Journal of Materials Engineering 2018, 8(2): 28-34 29 in laboratories throughout the years have improved, leading to a more reliable wood property for designers of wood structures when considering the effect of buckling in wood columns and measuring the vertical displacement in wood beams [13-15]. For this reason, the present research intend to perform a numerical comparation with the conventional three point static bending test experiment performed by Almeida et al. [8] to verify the significance to model Simarouba amara Aubl. wood, an orthotropic material, as isotropic material, according Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9] and propose a constitutive model for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie. model analysis [16]. Widely used in automotive and aerospace industries, it is used for academic purpose due its capacity to solve non-linear problems. With modeling executed in software ABAQUS, proceed the discretization of the area in finite elements. The discretization was made using a 3D element S8R, Shell Planar, with partitions to apply boundary conditions and a four layer mesh (Figure 3). 2. Material and Methods Experimental tests were made using 18 test proofs with nominal dimensions 20x20x320 mm [8] using wood around 12% moisture, with the major dimension parallel to the grain. Although the relation length/height disposed by the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9] is 21, the test proofs were made with ratio length/height equal 14, due to universal machine EMIC is unable to develop tests with proofs longer than 320 mm. For an appropriate comparation, the numerical modeling was made using the nominal dimensions of 20x20x320 mm, following the ratio length/height equal to 14. The modulus of elasticity on static bending test and the strength on static bending test were obtained according the disposed in Annex B in the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9]. The analysis performed considered the three point bending test (Figure 1). Figure 2. ABAQUS Interface (Source: Author) Figure 3. Mesh discretization (Source: Author) The material was considered linear elastic in the Analysis 1considering plastic deformation in wood. In Analysis 2, the material will be considered only in elastic regime. These analysis will be done using the conventional modulus of elasticity on static bending test, EM, defined by Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9] using the average values obtained by Almeida et al. [8] in force displacement diagram. The Poisson coefficient to be used is an estimative made by Ballarin and Nogueira [5] for hardwood species in radial longitudinal plan, which one will be solicited in the proof test, equal to νLR = 0.37. These considerations were made due to lack of literature about physical and mechanical characterization of Simarouba amara Aubl wood specie. Figure 1. Scheme of Three Point Bending Test. Source: https://www.poliuretanos.com.br/Cap8/8125Compressao.htm Despite the fact that wood is considered an orthotropic material, numerical modeling considered the material isotropic. This modification was evaluated in the final results to verify the significance of this consideration in the final associated error. The numerical modeling used finite element analysis software ABAQUS. ABAQUS/CAE provides a pre-processing and post-processing interface (Figure 2) for 2.1. Numerical Validation The computational validation in this research used the results of Mello and Castanheira [17], a cantilever and pinned beam and the results of Liu and Quek [18], a cantilever beam. To validate the numerical analysis in this research, models were created in ABAQUS software to perform the same analysis made by Mello and Castanheira [17] and Liu and Quek [18] and analyze the associated error between the ABAQUS results (Present Research) and the author's results [17, 18]. 30 Vinicius Borges de Moura Aquino et al.: Comparative Analysis of Static Bending Test and Constitutive Modeling of Simarouba amara Aubl.

Results and Discussion In this section, the ultimate tensile stress parallel to the grain (????????) and the maximum vertical displacement in the beam will be evaluated. For modeling, the boundary conditions and the material constants like the ultimate load on the beam, the modulus of elasticity and Poisson's coefficient were inserted in International Journal of Materials Engineering 2018, 8(2): 28-34 31 ABAQUS software. Considering the study of Almeida et al. [8] the load-displacement diagram is presented with average values (Figure 9). With load-displacement diagram, the conventional modulus of elasticity on static bending test, EM is presented on Eq. (2), according the disposed in the Annex B of the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9]. The average ultimate load of rupture found was 1139.54 N. ( ( ) ) EM = FM ,50% − FM ,10% L3 v50% − v10% 4bh3 (2) The FM,50%, FM,10% and v50%, v10% represents the force and displacement on 50% and 10% of ultimate load of rupture, respectively. Then, according to the load-displacement diagram (Figure 9), FM,50% equals to 569.77 N and FM,10% equals to 113.95 N. The displacement v50% equals to 3.20 mm and v10% equals to 0.62 mm. estimative was made in this form due to lack of mathematical modeling in literature dealing with this type of strain in wood. Thereby, the stress-strain diagram was evaluated for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie. The real stress in the beam and plastic strain were calculated (Table 4) for Analysis 1. Table 4. Evaluation of Real Stress and Plastic Strain Nominal Stress (N/cm²) 4260.30 5980.00 Nominal Strain 0.00639 0.00899 Real Stress (N/cm²) 4283 6036 Real Strain 0.00637 0.00894 Plastic Strain 0.0000 0.0001 The presented values of normal stress are in N/cm² and the displacement values are in centimeters. Thus, the results for normal stress are disposed (Figure 10). Figure 10. Normal Stress along the Fibers - Elastoplastic Analysis (Source: Author) In addition, the result for vertical displacement is showed (Figure 11). Figure 9. Average Load-Displacement Diagram on Three Point Bending Test (Source: Author) Performing the substitutions in Eq. 2, the average EM for Simarouba amara Aubl. equals to 6418.89 MPa. To determine the conventional strength on static bending test (fM), defined by: fM = Mm x W e (3) The We is the elastic modulus section and Mmax the maximum couple applied. Substituting the values in Eq. (3), the fM equals to 59.82 MPa for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie. In the Analysis 1 the material will be considered as elastoplastic material. The plastic regime was calculated according the percentage of the elastic loading about the ultimate load. According Almeida et al [8], the average percentage is 78.51% of the ultimate load (1139.54 N). Then, the elastic normal stress on bending (fMEl) was calculated with this load. The plastic strain was estimated based in the conventional strength fM and the ultimate elastic normal stress fMEl using the elastic theory, the Hooke's law [20]. This Figure 11. Vertical displacement - Elastoplastic analysis (Source: Author) For Analysis 2, the material was considered in elastic regime. The applied load considered is the ultimate load [1139.54 N]. Then, the results for normal stress along the grain (Figure 12) and vertical displacement (Figure 13) are presented. Figure 12. Normal Stress along the Grain - Elastic Analysis (Source: Author) 32 Vinicius Borges de Moura Aquino et al.: Comparative Analysis of Static Bending Test and Constitutive Modeling of Simarouba amara Aubl. Wood Specie by the load-displacement diagram, FM,30% equals to 341.86 N and FM,10% equals to 113.95 N. The displacement v50% equals to 1.89 mm and v10% equals to 0.62 mm. Performing the substitutions in Eq. (2), the new EM for Simarouba amara Aubl. is 6155.42 MPa. Poisson's coefficient is the same evaluated by Ballarin and Nogueira [5]. The plastic analysis followed the previous one, evaluating the real stress and plastic strain. Figure 13. Vertical Displacement - Elastic Analysis (Source: Author) Considering the numerical and experimental analysis, it is compared the Load-Displacement Diagram in both analysis (Figure 14). Table 5.

Load-Displacement Diagram - Comparative Analysis (Source: Author) Observing the load-displacement diagram, it can be inferred the conventional modulus of elasticity in static bending test is not valid due to the curves are not coincident in the stretch equal to 10% and 50% of ultimate load. It must be pointed out that Analysis 1 has a small plastic deformation, the material behavior resembles the material behavior in Analysis 2, leading to line overlap in Figure 14. After the application of 30% ultimate load, the consideration of elastic material expires, with the experimental curve displaying a considerable displacement. Then, in the evaluation of conventional strength on static bending test must considered a model which includes the inelastic stretch. For the inelastic stretch, guided by ABAQUS software, it is proposed a stress-strain diagram to evaluate this physical non-linearity. The model for stress-strain diagram of Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie was made in an iterative form on ABAQUS, following the behavior of the material in experimental test. In this proposition, the elastic theory was used [20] in the iterations. After that, many models were used to converge to the experimental load-displacement diagram [8]. The considerations made about the material are disposed in Table 5. The modulus of elasticity (EM) was calculated using the formula disposed in ABNT NBR 7190 [9], but using the percentages of 10% and 30% of ultimate load in values of load and displacement, respectively. Thus, Figure 15. Stress-Strain Diagram - Constitutive Proposed Model for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie After these considerations, the software ABAQUS processed the model. Vertical displacement (Figure 16) and normal stress along the grain (Figure 17) were evaluated. For comparison, the constitutive model stress-strain proposed diagram and the ABAQUS provided stress-strain diagram is disposed (Figure 18). Also, the experimental load-displacement diagram and the ABAQUS provided load-displacement diagram are compared (Figure 19). Figure 16. Normal Stress - Constitutive Proposed Model International Journal of Materials Engineering 2018, 8(2): 28-34 33 Figure 17. Vertical Displacement - Constitutive Proposed Model specie has not been characterized, the constitutive model proposed in this research enables designers of wood structures to use this important and reliable tool to perform the pre dimensioning of wood structures. The improvement on evaluation and analysis of strength and stiffness properties leads for some standard reviews. Observing the study performed by Logsdon et al. [21], the need of a review is indicated on the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9]. The calculus model for conventional modulus of elasticity on static bending test (EM) disposed in Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 7190 [9] was not appropriate for Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie. As a suggestion for further revisions and researches, an evaluation of percentages of ultimate load to proceed the calculus of EM and the model adopted in this research is suggested. 4. Conclusions Figure 18. Stress-Strain Diagram - Proposed Diagram and ABAQUS Comparative Analysis Considering the Figure 18, the constitutive proposed model was appropriated for Simarouba amara Aubl., with the curves displaying good implementation of constitutive model. The software ABAQUS curve shows the material behavior until ultimate strength, obtained in the experimental test [8]. Then, the final stretch on proposed diagram stress-strain diagram is not significative due its rupture in experimental test. The results of this study allow us to conclude: - A constitutive model was proposed for stress-strain diagram of Simarouba amara Aubl. wood specie. The model showed its efficiency when evaluated the normal stress on proof tests, allowing its use for wood structures designers; - The numerical validation presented low values of error, demonstrating its accuracy when compared with experimental results; - The consideration of elastic material to evaluate the conventional modulus of elasticity on static bending test (EM) disposed on Brazilian Standard is not valid due to the material non-linearity; - The conventional strength on static bending test demands a revision on the Brazilian Standard by cause of material non-linearity on the experiment final stretch, leading to different values.
