Abstract : The tensile fracture of spheroidised plain carbon steels is predominantly initiated by cracking associated with the carbide particles as reported by Liu and Gurland. The increase in the number of voids resulting from such cracking as a function of tensile strain at room pressure has been investigated by Gurland who found that cracking of the carbide particles began in the early stages of plastic deformation. In the present work the development of voids originating from cracks associated with carbide particles has been investigated as a function of strain at a number of superimposed hydrostatic pressures.

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...

Abstract The initiation of fracture in the microstructure at room temperature was observed in tension, compression and torsion. Cracks are formed in the carbide particles in a direction normal to the tensile strain imposed upon the particles by the deforming matrix. Criteria of fracture based on fiber loading and dislocation mechanisms relate the particle fracture strength to the influence of shape and orientation of the particles and mean free slip distance in the alloy. A particle size effect ...

Fracture micro mechanisms of ductile porous solids are substantially researched worldwide since last 60 years through different experiments, theories, thermodynamics and computer models. It is still attracting immense interests to the scientists/engineers as evidenced by a slew of many interesting and innovative techniques, different perceptions and philosophies to elucidate ductile fracture micro mechanisms of materials. The damage accumulation (i.e., void volume fraction, fv) inside a ductile ...
Present article comprehensively explores the influence of specimen thickness on the quantitative estimates of different ductile fractographic features in two dimensions, correlating tensile properties of a reactor pressure vessel steel tested under ambient temperature where the initial crystallographic texture, inclusion content, and their distribution are kept unaltered. It has been investigated that the changes in tensile fracture morphology of these steels are directly attributable to the res...

In situ X-ray diffraction and small angle scattering measurements during tensile tests were performed on 9-12% Cr ferritic/martensitic steels. The lattice strains in both particle and matrix phases, along two principal directions, were directly measured. The load transfer between particle and matrix was calculated based on matrix/particle elastic mismatch, matrix plasticity and interface decohesion. In addition, the void or damage evolution during the test was measured using small angle X-ray sc...

Abstract The effects of systematic changes in microstructure/heat treatment on the mechanical behavior of Cu–15Ni–8Sn (Pfinodal®) were evaluated in uniaxial tension. Multiple samples were tested and fracture surfaces were analyzed via scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Significant effects of cold work and heat treatment on the tension behavior were obtained and rationalized based on the mechanisms of failure, revealed by SEM, for this system.

AbstractThe effects of flow stress and specimen geometry on the fracture morphology of Nickel 270 were studied experimentally and computationally. Tensile tests were performed on cold worked and annealed specimens with two gauge geometries. Fractographic observations revealed that all specimens failed by microvoid coalescence and shear. The relative proportions of the two failure modes were a function of stress - strain response. Microvoid density and aspect ratio were influenced by changes in m...

Abstract A phenomenological void–crack nucleation model for ductile metals with secondphases is described which is motivated from fracture mechanics and microscale physicalobservations. The void–crack nucleation model is a function of the fracture toughness of theaggregate material, length scale parameter (taken to be the average size of the second phaseparticles in the examples shown in this writing) , the volume fraction of the second phase, strainlevel, and stress state. These parameters are ...

AbstractThe processing and subsequent mechanical behaviour of a variety of commercially important materials are affected by the imposed stress state. In this review, the experimentally documented effects of superimposed pressure on deformation under quasistatic conditions are summarised, followed by a presentation of the effects of superimposed pressure on the fracture behaviour of a variety of materials including both ductile and brittle systems. It is shown that the pressure responses of a var...
