Abstract
The effects of hydrostatic pressures up to 600 MPa on the tensile fracture mechanisms of commercial aluminum and a free machining aluminum-copper alloy have been investigated. Tensile fracture of the commercial aluminum was found to occur by a mechanism leading to double-cup fracture at hydrostatic pressures up to 125 MPa with the pressure causing a progressive delay in the onset of void development. Above this pressure, void development was suppressed and all fractures occurred at chisel points. The chisel point fracture was found to involve the development of two opposing diagonal shear zones crossing through the neck center. Fracture of the aluminum alloy occurred by a cup-cone mechanism at pressures up to 300 MPa. Within this pressure range the natural strain to fracture increased linearly and the amount of void coalescence decreased. At higher pressures fracture of the aluminum alloy occurred entirely by a shear mechanism involving the development of void-sheets.

An investigation has been made into the effects of hydrostatic pressures up to 600 MPa on the tensile deformation and fracture mechanisms of commercial copper. Fracture occurred by the normal tensile fracture mechanism involving void coalescence followed by shear tearing at pressures up to 300 MPa. At pressures in excess of 300 MPa fracture occurred entirely by a mechanism involving highly localized bands of intense shear deformation. This mechanism resulted in fracture at a chisel-point so that...

Abstract : The present note describes some further work on the effect of pressure on the tensile fracture of a leaded alpha + beta brass used previously and an investigation into the fracture strain-pressure relationship of an alpha + beta brass. The purpose of these investigations was to establish whether the discontinuity found in the alpha-brass existed in these materials also.

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...

For specimens under ultra-low-cycle fatigue loading, cyclic plasticity and negative stress triaxialities are two main differences from monotonic loading cases. In this chapter, a crack initiation rule by adding a damage accumulation rule under negative stress triaxialities is proposed, where no damage accumulation is assumed for stress triaxialities below −1/3. This rule is based on previous experimental results. This chapter is mainly focused on the crack initiation rule of ductile metal under ...

Abstract One of the most confounding controversies in the ductile fracture community is the large discrepancy between predicted and experimentally observed strain-to-failure values during shear-dominant loading. Currently proposed solutions focus on better accounting for how the deviatoric stress state influences void growth or on measuring strain at the microscale rather than the macroscale. While these approaches are useful, they do not address a significant aspect of the problem: the only rup...

The cutting process is now combined with machining, milling, or drilling as one of the widespread manufacturing operations. It is used across various fields of engineering. From an economical point of view, it is desirable to maintain the process in the most effective way in terms of the fracture surface quality or minimizing the burr. It is not possible to manage this experimentally in mass production. Therefore, it is convenient to use numerical computation. To include the crack initiation and...

Abstract This paper aims to predict ductile fracture of mild steel under cyclic large strain loading (CLSL) using only tensile coupon test results. A micromechanics-based fracture model which adopts void growth model and Miner's rule in incremental form is proposed, where fracture is assumed to occur when a damage index reaches unit. Damage is postulated not to accumulate when stress triaxiality is less than a threshold. To calibrate the fracture model, cyclic experimental and numerical studies ...

Displacement field in AA5052 alloy during tensile test was visualized using Electronic speckle pattern interferometry. The process of nucleation and propagation of Portevin-Le Chatelier deformation band during the plastic deformation were investigated by a dynamic observation of the images of displacement contours (fringe pattern). Various types of bands were observed depending on the applied strain rate and the total strain at which the deformation band (DB) appeared. The characteristics of nuc...

It has been shown that the plastic response of many materials, including some metallic alloys, depends on the stress state. Based on plasticity analysis of three metal alloys, a series of new plasticity models with stress state effect is proposed. The effect of stress state on plasticity and the general forms of the yield function and flow potential for isotropic materials are assumed to be functions of the first invariant of the stress tensor (I1) and the second and third invariants of the devi...
