ABSTRACT:
The Cellular Automata represent a universal method of modelling and simulation. They enable the performance of calculations for even the most complex processes and phenomena. They are also used successfully in mechanical and material engineering. In this paper, the concept of application of the Cellular Automata method for simulating the behaviour of material under stress is presented. The proposed numerical algorithm created performs a number of calculations of local stress states in the structure of precipitation hardened material. The principle of its operation is based on the application of the equivalent truss model, which is often used in the optimisation and design of structures. In this paper, this model was used to simulate a system embodying a section of the material containing various phases with different mechanical properties.
