Title: Dynamic shear localization of a titanium alloy under high-rate tension characterized by x-ray digital image correlation

Abstract

Dynamic and quasi-static tension experiments are conducted on Ti-6A1-4V alloys, with in situ, synchrotron-based, high-speed, x-ray phase contrast imaging implemented to characterize the dynamic deformation and fracture process of Ti alloys at the Advanced Photon Source. X-ray digital imaging correlation (XDIC) is applied for strain field mapping. The size distribution of x-ray speckles are quantified via a morphological analysis, with a mean of ~ 20 μm. Systematic error analyses of displacement and strain field measurements are firstly conducted for XDIC, and demonstrate that the displacement and strain errors can be controlled below 0.01 pixel and 0.1%, respectively. Mesoscale strain characteristics measured via XDIC are consistent with and reveal mechanisms for the bulk-scale stress-strain responses. Under dynamic tension, a sharp transition to strain softening occurs when the bulk strain exceeds about 0.04, which leads to a lower dynamic fracture strain (0.08) than the quasi-static one (0.1). The corresponding strain filed mapping demonstrates that shear deformation localizations grow and coalesce rapidly into a narrow shear deformation band under dynamic loading, while tensile deformation and necking progresses gradually under quasi-static loading. Scanning electron microscopy shows that void nucleation occurs mainly at the interface of α and β phases for both quasi-static and dynamicmore » tension. However, microvoids coalesce preferentially along colony boundaries or the boundary α phase under quasi-static tension, but along the maximum shear stress direction (across colonies) under dynamic tension. Fractography of recovered samples also shows consistent features.« less
