Abstract
Al alloy 7085 in the T711 temper has been proposed as a lightweight metallic armor material. The room temperature constitutive response is assessed by compression testing at quasi-static (0.001 s−1) and dynamic (1000 s−1) strain rates along the rolling (RD), transverse (TD), and normal (ND) directions. The flow strength, plastic strain anisotropy (r-values) and texture evolution is measured along each direction. While the flow stress exhibits only mild anisotropy, the compressive r-values revealed strong strain anisotropy, with values close to 0.4 for RD, 0.8 for TD, and 0.6–0.8 for ND. The fracture response was also found to be anisotropic, with ND showing a lower compressive ductility as compared to the RD and TD. The level of anisotropy is essentially independent of the strain rate. However, flow softening and localization are more evident at dynamic rates. By employing self-consistent polycrystal plasticity simulation, the relative contributions of initial crystallographic texture, latent hardening and anisotropic grain shape effects were explored. The simulation results suggest that the ND and TD r-values are strongly affected by anisotropic grain shape, whereas the RD is rather insensitive to grain shape. Although the polycrystal model correctly predicts the mild flow strength anisotropy, the predicted strain anisotropy (variations in r value) are higher than that observed experimentally. Interestingly, assuming the grain shape to be equiaxed gives the best overall results, which suggests that the morphological texture does not play a major role in determining the anisotropy of materials such as the present heat treatable Al alloy.

The crystal plasticity theory predicts that hardening on a particular slip system and its corresponding work-hardening rate will depend on the slip activity on both this slip system and all others. The exact form of this dependence is defined by the latent hardening description in form of the latent hardening matrix or the interaction matrix. It has been assumed that this matrix describes the relative strength of various dislocation interactions and is therefore the same for a wide range of allo...

Abstract Uniaxial tension and compression tests, at both quasi-static and dynamic ranges of loadings, are utilized to study the thermo-mechanical response of an AA5182-O sheet. The strain rate at quasi-static regime ranges from 10 −4 to 10 0 (s −1 ) and at dynamic loading is chosen to be around 3500 (s −1 ). Measurements are reported at temperatures of 296 K, 338 K, 373 K, 423 K, and 473 K. While at temperatures lower than the critical temperature of T c , the flow stress decreases with increase...

The dynamic behavior of Mg alloys is an area of interest for applications such as crash-sensitive automotive components and armor. The rare-earth element-containing alloy WE43B-T5 has performed well in ballistic testing, so the quasi-static (~10−3 1/s) and dynamic (~600–5000 1/s) mechanical behaviors of two Mg alloys, rolled WE43B-T5 and extruded AM30-F, were investigated using servohydraulic and Kolsky bar testing in uniaxial tension and compression. The yield stress was surprisingly isotropic ...

Abstract Two micro–macro scale transition models, namely the ALAMEL and visco-plastic self-consistent (VPSC) models (both predict the evolution of grain shape and texture), were used to study the effect of the initial grain shape. The evolution of plastic anisotropy was characterized by the q -value and was simulated in three directions for three low carbon steels assuming either equiaxed (hypothetical one) or a pancake (measured one) grain shape. In addition, texture evolution during rolling wa...

Abstract The present work aims at exploring self and latent hardening for FCC polycrystals under complex loading paths at room temperature. A relative quantification of the effect of the different interaction types between the 12 slip systems on the hardening is notably proposed. Combinations of simple loading sequences, such as tension and simple shear, with different orientations with regard to rolling direction, are considered. The material used is a 0.5 mm sheet of hot rolled OFHC copper. Tw...

Thermal forming can improve the formability of Al alloy, but researchers do not thoroughly understand the effect of deformation parameters on the flow stress and microstructure evolution of die-casting 7085 Al alloy. In this study, we simulated compression with a Gleeble-3800 thermal simulator between 523 K and 723 K, and strain rates from 0.001 to 1 s−1. We established an Arrhenius flow stress constitutive equation of the alloy. We were particularly interested in understanding the relationship ...

Abstract null null Effects of the coherency of Al3Zr on the microstructures and quench sensitivity of Al-8.3Zn-2.3Mg-2.4Cu (AA7055) alloys were investigated. These alloys were subjected to two cold-rolling ratios (i.e., 5% and 20%) in order to vary the coherency of Al3Zr particles. The main objectives of this study were to reduce the quench sensitivity, refine the grain size, and retain the coherency of Al3Zr for high-strength Al–Zn–Mg–Cu production alloys. null Resultsreveal that with the incre...

Strategies for efficient and reliable texture measurements have been explored using the Nanoscale Ordered Materials Diffractometer (NOMAD) at the Spallation Neutron Source located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). To test these strategies, the texture of an Al alloy was also investigated using another neutron diffraction instrument, a constant-wavelength neutron diffractometer (NRSF2) located at the High Flux Isotope Reactor, also at ORNL. Reasonable agreement was found across the two exp...

Perforation of aluminum alloy target plates by armor-piercing rounds have been shown to follow the cavity expansion scaling law, while fragment-simulating projectiles follow a shear-plugging scaling law. In both models, experimental compressive stress–strain data is needed to derive their respective material strength parameters, which are not always available. By comparison, modified Ludwik plasticity parameters are more widely available in existing literature for the aluminum alloys of interest...

Abstract Modern aluminum industries need an in-depth understanding and a more accurate prediction of the flow stress and microstructure evolution during multi-stage thermomechanical processing. The underlying mechanisms of Al alloys are distinct from that of other metallic materials (e.g., steels and copper) owing to the very high stacking fault energy. In the hot forming process of ultra-high strength Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys, the high alloying element additions have a more complex effect on multiple...

Abstract The thermo-mechanical behavior and texture evolution of two overaged Al 7056 alloy plates, in T761 and T721 tempers, are measured over a wide range of strain rates (10−4 – 3 × 103 s−1) and temperatures (22–300 °C) under uniaxial tension and compression along the thickness direction, i.e. normal to the plate surface. A detailed study of the initial microstructure reveals an increase in precipitate size and decrease in density of precipitates, as the alloy is aged from the T761 to T721 te...

Equal-Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) was carried out on 7075 aluminum alloy with a process route of Bc mode, thus, achieving the aims of refining crystal grains and improving alloy plasticity. To save cost and optimize the ECAP process, DEFORM finite element simulation of the ECAP extrusion process was conducted to determine the ratio of die shear Angle to extrusion. The results show that the mold optimum process parameters are 135° for the shear angle (Φ) and λ = 2 the extrusion ratio. The def...
