The strength and ductility of cast Al-Si-Mg alloy are predicted from a multi-scale finite element model that integrates the Mori-Tanaka (MT) mean field homogenization and the Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman (GTN) ductile fracture model. The MT mean field method calculates the stress of Si particle embedded in the aluminum matrix and the nucleation of void is determined if the stress satisfies a critical failure value. The nucleated voids from the cracked Si particles grow and finally initiate the ductile fracture of matrix under the scheme of GTN approach. Moreover, the cracking of Si particles is identified by applying the Weibull distribution function, which reproduces the probabilistic characteristics of failure under various stress states. The developed finite element model is validated by predicting the tensile failure strengths and strains of different geometries of specimens covering shear to biaxial modes. The comparison shows reasonably good agreement with experimental failure data.
