Abstract A detailed study has been made of the effects of hydrostatic pressures in the range 0.1–600 MPa on the tensile fracture strain of an α-brass. Fracture strain has been found to increase linearly with pressure up to 350 MPa, to decrease between pressures of 350 and 375 MPa and to then increase to a constant value at pressures greater than 450 MPa. The abrupt change from linearity of the fracture strain-pressure relationship at a pressure of 350 MPa was found to coincide with the suppressi...

Abstract The effects of hydrostatic pressures in the range 0.1 to 600 MPa on the tensile fracture of a free machining brass have been studied. In agreement with the results of earlier workers, the natural strain to fracture was found to increase rapidly with pressure for pressures up to 300 MPa, but to increase less rapidly at the higher pressures. The rapid increase in ductility under confining pressures up to 300 MPa is shown to be due to the suppression of void development, by the pressure, u...
