Interfaces have been reported to significantly strengthen and toughen metallic materials. However, there has been a long-standing question on whether interface-affected-zone (IAZ) exists, and how it might behave. Here we report in situ high-resolution strain mapping near interfaces in a copper–bronze heterogeneous laminate, which revealed the existence of IAZs. Defined as the zone with strain gradient, the IAZ was found to form by the dislocations emitted from the interface. The IAZ width remain...

Abstract Bauschinger effect is a well-known phenomenon, in which the tensile stress is higher than the reverse compressive stress. Here we report that the gradient structured copper exhibits an extraordinarily large Bauschinger effect. We propose to use the reverse yield softening, Δ σ b , as a quantitative parameter to represent the Bauschinger effect. Δ σ b evolves in the same trend as the back stress with pre-strain, and can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a heterostructure in produc...

ABSTRACTCeramic particles have been introduced into metal matrices to improve the strength and stiffness of metals, albeit at the cost of the ductility unfortunately. Simultaneously increasing the strength and ductility of metal matrix composites (MMCs) is still a challenge. Accumulative orthogonal extrusion process (AOEP), which disperses nanoparticles and refines grain structures of particles reinforced MMCs via severe plastic deformation, is proposed in this paper. The high strength (687 MPa)...

ABSTRACTAs demonstrated by the loading–unloading tests and the modeling of the grain size effect and the composite effect, mainly owing to the back stress induced by CNTs, carbon nanotube/aluminum (CNT/Al) composites exhibit higher strain hardening capability than the unreinforced ultrafine-grained Al matrix. The back stress induced by CNTs should arise from the interfacial image force and the long-range interaction between statically stored dislocations and geometrically necessary dislocations ...

ABSTRACTBcc-ordered B2 and fcc phases manifest three different orientation relationships (ORs) in the same microstructure: Kurdjumov–Sachs, Nishiyama–Wasserman and Pitsch. This unique microstructure was developed via conventional cold-rolling and subsequent annealing of an fcc-based Al0.3CoCrFeNi complex concentrated alloy (CCA). The degeneracy in crystallographic ORs was caused by {111}⟨112⟩twins, on multiple {111}, from the prior cold-rolling step. Annealing produced B2 precipitates on all the...

ABSTRACTMicro-pillars with diameters varying from 0.5 to 3.5 µm were fabricated from bulk nanolaminated graphene (in the form of reduced grapheme oxide, RGO)–Al composite. Upon uniaxial compression, the pillar strengths exhibited no obvious size effect, and the pillars of larger diameters possessed smoother stress–strain response, as opposed to the jerky deformation of their smaller counterparts. A corresponding transition in the deformation mode from Al layer extrusion to shear fracture over de...

Using surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT), a gradient structure composed of two gradient structure (GS) layers and a coarse grain (CG) layer was generated from a Cu-5.7 wt pct Ge alloy, significantly improving the yield strength of the sample. Unloading–reloading tests showed an unusual Bauschinger effect in these GS samples. The back stresses caused by the accumulated geometrically necessary dislocations (GNDs) on the GS/CG border increased with increasing strain. As found by electron...

Abstract Interfaces play a crucial role in mechanical behaviors of both laminated and gradient structured materials. In this work, copper/bronze laminates with varying interface spacing were fabricated by accumulative roll bonding and subsequent annealing to systematically study the interface effect on mechanical properties. Heterogeneities exist in chemical composition, grain size, hardness and texture across the interfaces. Simultaneous improvement of strength and ductility with decreasing int...

Heterostructured materials have a superior combination of strength and ductility, due to their ability to produce hetero-deform induced (HDI) strengthening and hardening. Therefore, achieving high HDI strengthening and hardening is a goal for designing heterostructures. Here we report a dual heterostructure in brass that includes heterogeneous lamella and gradient structures, fabricated by rolling, partial annealing and rotationally accelerated shot peening (RASP). Extraordinary HDI strengthenin...

Abstract Laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) of Sc/Zr-modified Al-based alloys has recently become a promising method for developing a new generation of high-performance Al alloys. To clarify the modification roles of Sc/Zr elements, an Al–4.66Mg–0.48Mn–0.72Sc–0.33Zr (wt.%) alloy was processed using L-PBF. The effect of the local solidification condition of the molten pool on the precipitation behavior of primary Al3(Sc,Zr) was analyzed based on time-dependent nucleation theory. It was found that pr...

Abstract High-entropy alloys (HEAs) have attracted tremendous attention owing to their controllable mechanical properties, whereas additive manufacturing (AM) is an efficient and flexible processing route for novel materials design. However, a profound appraisal of the fundamental material physics behind the strengthening of AM-printed HEAs upon low/intermediate-temperature annealing is essential. In this work, CoCrFeNiMn HEAs have been prepared using laser-engineered net shaping (LENS) and subs...

Abstract This study explored a multi-mechanism approach to improving the mechanical properties of a CoCrFeMnNi high-entropy alloy through non-equiatomic alloy design and processing. The alloy design ensures a single-phase face-centered cubic structure while lowering the stacking fault energy to encourage the formation of deformation twins and stacking faults by altering the equiatomic composition of the alloy. The processing strategy applied helped create a hierarchical grain size gradient micro...

Abstract null null Gradient-structured nickel (Ni) was processed by rotationally accelerated shot peening (RASP). The microstructures and mechanical properties of the RASP-processed samples were studied. Nanostructured layers with a thickness of ~50 μm were formed on the sample surfaces. Beneath the surface layer there is a transition region in the depth range of ~50–150 μm. The transition region contains high densities of dense dislocation walls (DDWs), microbands (MBs), sub-grain boundaries an...

Abstract null null Deformation mechanism-based constitutive modeling can serve as a flexible tool to optimize the microstructure of hetero-structured metals for achieving better mechanical performance. In this work, a dislocation density-based constitutive model, which considers geometrically necessary dislocations (GNDs) and the back stress induced by internal heterogeneous deformation, is developed for describing the deformation of hetero-structured laminate materials. The heterogeneous lamina...
