Title: Yield stress and plasticity of nanostructured titanium of different purity at 300, 77, and 4.2 K

Abstract

Specimens of nanostructured titanium with different dopant concentrations were prepared by intense plastic deformation via equal-channel-angular pressing. The low-temperature mechanical characteristics of the specimens subjected to active deformation under uniaxial tension and compression were studied. The yield stress and the limit uniform deformation of nanostructured and coarse-grained polycrystalline titanium were compared.

  • Randomly oriented single crystals of high-purity titanium were prepared by strain annealing and were subjected to multiple-step fatigue testing under strain-controlled conditions, in order to determine their cyclic stress-strain curves (CSSCs). These were found to fall into three groups, depending on orientation and the extent of slip and twinning. For those crystals oriented for single prismatic slip, a plateau was observed in the CSSCs, persistent slip bands (PSBs) occurred, and the plateau stress was 38 MPa. In a second group, oriented for prismatic slip but for which cross-slip and twinning was favored, the plateau was suppressed and the flow stressesmore » were higher. In a third group, connected with orientations on the borders of the unit triangle, extensive hardening occurred, the CSSCs were steep, and there were multiple cases of slip and twinning. The results are interpreted in terms of maps in the stereographic projection recording the Schmid factors for the various deformation modes.« less
  • We use previous results from discrete element simulations of simple shear flows of rigid, identical spheres in the collisional regime to show that the volume fraction-dependence of the stresses is singular at the shear rigidity. Here, we identify the shear rigidity, which is a decreasing function of the interparticle friction, as the maximum volume fraction beyond which a random collisional assembly of grains cannot be sheared without developing force chains that span the entire domain. In the framework of extended kinetic theory, i.e., kinetic theory that accounts for the decreasing in the collisional dissipation due to the breaking of molecularmore » chaos at volume fractions larger than 0.49, we also show that the volume fraction-dependence of the correlation length (measure of the velocity correlation) is singular at random close packing, independent of the interparticle friction. The difference in the singularities ensures that the ratio of the shear stress to the pressure at shear rigidity is different from zero even in the case of frictionless spheres: we identify that with the yield stress ratio of granular materials, and we show that the theoretical predictions, once the different singularities are inserted into the functions of extended kinetic theory, are in excellent agreement with the results of numerical simulations.« less
