résumé Polycrystalline metallic materials are made of an aggregate of grains more or less well oriented with respect to the loading axis. During mechanical loading, the diversity of grain orientations leads to heterogeneous deformation and it is well known that most of the plastic work generated during the deformation process reappears in the form of heat whereas a certain proportion remains latent in the material and is associated with microstructure changes. To access the local stored energy, experimental and numerical energy balances are needed at a suitable scale. In this way experiments have already been done in-house on 316L stainless steel to monitor the evolution of temperature and deformation fields at the microstructural scale. The aim of the present study is now to develop a simplified numerical model, based on experimental observations and able to simulate the thermomechanical behavior, in order to provide a first assessment of the stored energy level and heterogeneity. Our model renders well the average thermomechanical behavior of the specimen and reveals a high heterogeneity of the stored energy at the microstructure scale. Better knowledge of the stored energy at this scale should improve our understanding of strain localization mechanisms.
