Abstract
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, until later stages of deformation. The decrease in slope of the fracture strain pressure relationship above 300 MPa pressure was found to coincide with the localization of void formation to a narrow region at the centre of the neck.

A law governing the change in the ductility of metals and alloys under pressure is given: \begin{gathered} \left( {\frac{P}{{\sigma _n }}} \right) = \tfrac{1}{2}\frac{1}{{\sigma _n }}\frac{{d\sigma }}{{d\varepsilon }}\{ \varepsilon _{local} (P)^{\tfrac{3}{2}} - \varepsilon _{local} (O)^{\tfrac{3}{2}} \} + \tfrac{1}{3}\frac{1}{{\sigma _n }}\frac{{d\sigma }}{{d\varepsilon }}\{ \varepsilon _{local} (P) - \varepsilon _{local} (O)\} + \hfill \\ {\text{ }} + \tfrac{1}{2}\{ \varepsilon _{local} (P)^{...

A new adaptable deformation apparatus has been developed for constant strain-rate tests up to 5 kb. confining pressure and 500° C. at strain rates from 0.4 to \$3\cdot 10^{-8}/sec. In most of the sixty-four tests reported here, jacketed cylinders of Yule marble (oriented parallel, at 45° and normal to the foliation) were extended 10 per cent at temperatures from 25° to 500° C., 5 kb. confining pressure. Several samples were deformed 60-80 per cent at temperatures ranging from 350° to 500° C. a...

Abstract Cup-and-cone fracture in single-phase ductile metals appears to originate at holes formed by drawing away of material from non-metallic inclusions, as suggested by Tipper. In copper, the holes expand under the triaxial stresses in the neck and coalesce in a macroscopic fissure; in α iron fine cracks are formed by the stress concentrated at the holes. In coarsegrained material shear cracks are formed on the surface of the neck. Pure polycrystalline aluminium separates at the neck of a te...

The effect of the width to thickness ratio on the bendability of sheet metal is investigated using the finite element method (FEM) employing the Gurson–Tvergaard–Needleman (GTN) model. Strain path changes in the sheet with change in the width/thickness ratio. It is shown that bendability and fracture strain increase significantly by decrease in the width/thickness ratio. The stress state is almost uniaxial when the stress ratio (α) is close to zero for narrow sheets. Stress ratio is nothing but ...

Abstract The effect of superimposed hydrostatic pressure on the bendability of sheet metal is investigated using the finite element method employing the Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman (GTN) model. It is shown that bendability and fracture strain increase significantly by imposing hydrostatic pressure as it delays the growth and coalescence of microvoids but it has insignificant effect on void nucleation using the GTN model, which is strain controlled for void nucleating. Furthermore, the effect of s...

Abstract Finite element analysis and scanning electron microscope were conducted to investigate the bulging deformation and fracture of tubes in double-sided hydroforming. The effect of the external pressure imposed on the tube, which determines the magnitude of superimposed hydrostatic pressure, on the stress state, yield locus, fracture surface formation, and fracture strain was evaluated. The simulation results revealed that sufficiently high external pressure can change the stress state of t...

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 The finite element method is used to numerically simulate necking and fracture in hydroforming tubes under internal pressure through using the GTN model. The effect of superimposed hydrostatic pressure on necking (both uniform stain and localized necking), fracture initiation and fracture surface formation are studied. It is found that the superimposed hydrostatic pressure has a great impact on the onset of fracture with the increase of superimposed hydrostatic pressure, but insignifica...

Abstact The tensile properties and fracture behaviors of the pre-charged hydrogen low alloy steel subjected to various tempering temperatures were investigated by slow strain rate tensile tests. Hydrogen was introduced into the samples by electrochemical method in 0.5 mol L −1 NaOH solution with 1 g L −1 CH 4 N 2 S for 24 h at room temperature (298 K). The results show that with an increase in tempering temperature, the resistance to hydrogen embrittlement increases. For the sample tempered at 2...

Abstract The present work investigated the effect of cathodic hydrogen-charging current density on mechanical properties of prestrained high strength steels. This was done by tensile tests on both hydrogen-charged and -uncharged prestrained specimens at a cross-head displacement speed of 0.03 mm/min. The influence of prestrain on hydrogen behavior was also studied using an electrochemical permeation technique. The results show that the relationship between ultimate tensile strength of the hydrog...

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 ...
