Unstable void growth

ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||In order to gain some insights into popcorn failure in plastic electronic packages, the phenomenon of unstable void growth of an incompressible neo-Hookean solid under non-symmetric loading is examined. A representative material cell containing a single microvoid is employed in the numerical analysis, where the effect of moisture can be easily incorporated; this cell is subjected to combined internal vapor pressure and remote thermal stress. Results have revealed that there is a maximum allowable mean stress, referred as the critical stress, which defines the onset of unstable void growth - the precursor of popcorn failure. Locus of the critical mean stress versus internal vapor pressure is obtained for typical values of initial porosity under uniaxial, equi-biaxial and equi-triaxial strainings. Results have clearly shown that the critical stress depreciates significantly as the internal vapor pressure is increased. This critical mean stress may therefore be perceived as a suitable criterion for initiation of popcorn failure in IC packages.||Source Title:||Key Engineering Materials||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/73763||ISSN:||10139826|
