Title: Strain partition and rupture analysis of notched tensile multilayered steel specimens

Abstract

Multilayered steel composites consisting of alternating martensitic and austenite layers were successfully fabricated with a combination of high strength and ductility. In situ SEM tensile experiments were performed to investigate the fracture processes. Results indicated that the martensitic layer distributed between two ductile austenite layers has better deformation ability, and the dimple fracture mode dominated the fracture of the whole specimen. In situ synchrotron microbeam X-ray diffraction experiments were carried out to study the microscopic deformation in austenitic layer and martensitic layer ahead of notch root under incremental tensile loading. Results indicated that for austenite layer, the maximum strain is located in the middle of the layer at the lower applied load. When at the higher applied load, larger strain is concentrated on the notch root. For martensitic layer, uniform strain is distributed at the region at the lower applied load, with increasing the applied load, small strain appears in the middle of martensitic layer. However, the variation in the strain in the martensitic layer is relatively smaller, which is actually affected by both the notch and the ferrite content in the martensitic layer. Furthermore, the changing trends of the strain in the austenite layer and martensitic layer can stillmore » show the better combination of brittle martensitic phase and ductile austenite phase.« less
