  • In-situ high energy diffraction microscopy (HEDM) experiments are carried out to analyze the state of combined bending and tension in a Ti-7Al alloy under room temperature creep. Grain-level elastic strain tensors are evaluated from HEDM data. Atomistic calculations are used to predict elastic constants of Ti-7Al, to be used in determination of stress from strain. The stress gradient and residual stresses are successfully determined, which allows the demarcation between macro-/micro-level residual stresses. A cluster of three neighboring grains are identified that highlight the variation of mean and effective stress between grains. Crystallographic orientations and slip characteristics are analyzed for themore » selected grains. It is inferred that the interfaces between loaded grains with markedly different stress triaxiality and slip tendency are potential spots for material damage.« less
  • The stresses generated in alumina scales during different oxidation steps control the protective character of such scales and their lifetime. Laboratory and industrial Fe-Cr-Al alloys, differing by their impurity content and preparation, and for which the oxidation kinetics were previously characterized, were studied here to experimentally determine or theoretically calculate the stress level in the alumina scales. The experiments were performed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) at room temperature, using the sin{sup 2} {Psi} method. The oxide-stress level was correlated with many parameters, such as the scale microstructure and morphology, the nature of the substrate, the substrate and oxide thickness, themore » oxide grain size, the cooling rate, etc. A numerical elasto-vis-coplastic model was developed to calculate the thermal stresses and to point out the effect of the relaxation phenomena either during cooling or during isothermal treatment after oxidation. The results obtained by the elasto-vis-coplastic model are in good agreement with the experimental ones.« less
  • An experimental and theoretical study of the strength differential effect (SDE) observed in uniaxial tensile/compressive testing in discontinuously reinforced metal matrix composites has been carried out. The predictions have been compared with experimental data obtained in three 6061Al-15 vol% SiC{sub w} composites. The study has been carried out using two subsequent steps. In the first one, the analysis of the residual stress, RS, state (assumed to be the ultimate responsible of the SDE) has been conducted using an extended Eshelby equivalent inclusion methodology. A good agreement between the experimental values as obtained by neutron diffraction and the values predicted bymore » the Eshelby model is obtained when the real composites microstructure (orientation and distribution of the reinforcement) is taken into consideration. The effective temperature drop responsible of the RS state in each composite has been calculated from this model. In the second step, the SDE values obtained in each of the composites is predicted in two ways. The Eshelby-Withers (EW) model, based on Eshelby's theory, has been used. In parallel, a new method, which combines the mechanisms of load transfer, as described by a Shear-Lag type model, with the RS has been developed. The characteristics of these two models are discussed. It is shown that the results derived from them fit very well with the experimental data presented. All these findings together allow showing that the load transfer mechanism introduces a correction factor, which compares the RS directly with the SDE. It is concluded that RS and the mechanism of load transfer are eventually the origin of the SDE in discontinuously reinforced metal matrix composites.« less
  • Residual stresses in Ti-15-3/SCS-9 composites have been measured in material with controlled matrix and interfacial microstructures. The FEMUR test was used to measure axial residual strains in the reinforcing fibers. Longitudinal and circumferential matrix residual strains were measured using X-ray techniques. Residual stresses were calculated from the residual strain measurements. The residual stress levels obtained in the specimens heat treated at 540 C were generally much lower than those in the specimens annealed at 815 C, although some anomalies were observed in the specimens annealed at 540 C for 10 hours. The trends in the residual stresses calculated from themore » results of the FEMUR and X-ray measurements were consistent with the requirements for static equilibrium.« less
