Title: Tensile and Microindentation Stress-Strain Curves of Al-6061

Abstract

Recent spherical microindentation stress-strain protocols were developed and validated on Al-6061 (DOI: 10.1186/s40192-016-0054-3). The scaling factor between the uniaxial yield strength and the indentation yield strength was determined to be about 1.9. The microindentation stress-strain protocols were then applied to a microstructurally graded sample in an effort to extract high throughput process-property relationships. The tensile and microindentation force-displacement and stress-strain data are presented in this data set.

  • Spherical nanoindentation combined with electron back-scattered diffraction was employed to characterize the grain-scale elastic and plastic anisotropy of single crystal alpha-Ti for commercially pure (CP-Ti) and alloyed (Ti-64) titanium. In addition, alpha-beta Ti (single colony) grains were characterized. The data set includes the nanoindentation force, displacement, and contact stiffness, the nanoindentation stress-strain analysis, and the alpha-Ti crystal orientations. Details of the samples and experimental protocols can be found in Weaver et al. (2016) Acta Materialia doi:10.1016/j.actamat.2016.06.053.
  • The results of quasi-static compression and tension tests of tantalum -10% tungsten alloy and Vascomax 300 CVM 300 trade maraging steel are presented. Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, and yield strength and ultimate strength were determined at test temperatures of 23.9 C. Results provide engineering properties documentation for materials used in several terminal ballistic tests.
  • For better understanding the mechanical properties of thin films it is helpful to use the same experimental methods as for bulk material, like tensile tests, thereby being able to directly compare the results. However, tensile tests of free-standing metallic thin films are often difficult to perform for reasons of preparation, handling, and stresses in the films. By leaving the metallic film on an elastic substrate tensile tests were performed in a rather simple and precise manner, using a commercial tensile testing machine. Stress-strain curves were determined by separating the force working on the substrate from that working on the film-substratemore » compound. Those measurements were done at room temperature for Al, AlCu(0.5 wt%) and Cu{sub 0.57}Ni{sub 0.42}Mn{sub 0.01} thin (200--2000 nm) films prepared by magnetron sputtering on 8 {micro}m and 13 {micro}m thick polyimide (Kapton) foils. The film microstructure was characterized by scanning and transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The tensile strength of the fine grained films was found to be up to one order of magnitude higher than for the corresponding coarse grained bulk material. Al and AlCu films showed little, CuNi(Mn) films showed no plastical behavior. Crack formation started between 0.3% and 2% strain depending on the material, the thermal history, and the grain size.« less
  • A method for predicting the nonlinear monotonic tensile stress-strain curves of short fiber reinforced polymer composites with different fiber orientation distributions is developed. Three-dimensional finite element models are used to analyze microcracking effects in the elastic constants of an aligned short fiber composite. Two damage state variables are defined. One represents the total area of parallel cracks (cracks run parallel to fibers) per unit volume, the other one represents the total area of perpendicular cracks (cracks run perpendicular to fibers) per unit volume. These two variables are used to relate the applied strains to the degraded elastic constants of anmore » aligned short fiber composite. Once the microcracking effect on the properties of an aligned short fiber composite is known, the average microcracking effect on the properties of short fiber composites with different fiber orientation distributions can be evaluated by orientation averaging. A prediction procedure which considers the effect of the microcracks is developed to predict the monotonic tensile stress-strain curves of short fiber composites with different fiber orientation distributions. Comparisons of the predictions and the experimental results show that the theoretical models predict the monotonic tensile stress-strain curves very well. The models not only predict the anisotropic properties of the material but also capture the feature of nonlinearity. The worst error in predictions is less than 7%.« less
  • ABSTRACT Microindentation is performed on hot isostatic pressed (HIP) Mg-Al (AM40) alloy samples produced by high-pressure die cast (HPDC) process for the purpose of quantifying the mechanical properties of the ╬▒-Mg grains. The process of obtaining elastic modulus and hardness from indentation load-depth curves is well established in the literature. A new inverse method is developed to extract plastic properties in this study. The method utilizes empirical yield strength-hardness relationship reported in the literature together with finite element modeling of the individual indentation. Due to the shallow depth of the indentation, indentation size effect (ISE) is taken into account whenmore » determining plastic properties. The stress versus strain behavior is determined for a series of indents. The resulting average values and standard deviations are obtained for future use as input distributions for microstructure-based property prediction of AM40.« less
