Abstract
Abstract Cyclic torsion of micron-scale polycrystalline copper wires was experimentally studied. It was found that cyclic hardening is more pronounced with larger strain amplitude under symmetric cyclic straining. The mean stress relaxation is accelerated with larger initial strain and smaller strain amplitude under asymmetric cyclic straining. Meanwhile, both sample size and grain size effects were observed. That is the mean stress relaxation increases with decreasing sample size and grain size. The grain size effect is caused by an elevated internal stress in wire with smaller grain size. The observed sample size effect is attributed to the internal stress induced by geometrically necessary dislocations.

Abstract Torsional stress relaxation experiments on thin copper wires are performed. A size effect is observed. That is a faster relaxation deformation arises in a thinner wire. As the wire diameter increases, the activation volume increases but the strain rate sensitivity decreases. A greater effect of geometrically necessary dislocations on the relaxation deformation accounts for the size effect. In a thinner wire, geometrically necessary dislocations undergo fewer obstacles to reach the wire ...

Abstract To predict the cyclic plasticity behavior of polycrystalline copper on the micro scale for fully reversed torsion, a model, which expresses back stress in an Armstrong-Frederick form, is developed. The model parameters are size dependent and correlate with the critical density of geometrically necessary dislocations (GNDs). For monotonic loading, the flow stress satisfies the parabolic Taylor relation, and a mathematical equation is derived that expresses the flow stress as the superpos...

Abstract The uniaxial tensile and multiaxial ratcheting behaviors of oligo-crystalline 316L stainless steel thin wires of two diameters (190 and 90 μm) with less than 3.5 grains across diameter were experimentally investigated. The size effect of “thinner is stronger” was observed on the yield strength, though the ultimate tensile strength and elongation were lower in the thinner wire. Under six differently combined axial stress and shear strain cycling conditions, the ratcheting strains were al...

Abstract To characterize the torsion stress relaxation in micro scale, the relation between the inelastic strain rate and the geometrically necessary dislocations (GNDs) is proposed. Based on the Orowan equation, which provides the description for strain rate evolution with the influence of density and velocity of mobile dislocation, the effect of GNDs is considered when materials exhibit non-uniform deformation at small scale. Additionally, the inelastic strain rate is presented as a power form...

Abstract Torsional stress relaxation behavior of copper wire with a diameter of 50 µm and grain size of 3.7 µm is experimentally investigated at room temperature. It is revealed that the stress relaxation occurs in both elastic and plastic regions. An elevated stress drop and a reduced apparent activation volume with increasing initial stress levels are also found in both elastic and plastic regions. Extremums of stress drop and activation volume are observed around the elastic limit. Meanwhile,...

Abstract Torsion experiments on copper wires with different diameters but the same grain size are performed to figure out the individual contribution of plastic strain gradient to size effect. The samples are prepared by electropolishing the wires with an initial diameter of 50 μm at room temperature for different time periods. A significant strain gradient effect is confirmed in wire torsion. Tensile results on the same wires verify that the tensile strength is not significantly affected by the...

Abstract The cyclic mechanical properties and microstructural stability of severe plastically deformed copper were investigated by means of micro bending experiments. The ultrafine-grained structure of OFHC copper was synthesized utilizing the high pressure torsion (HPT) technique. Micron sized cantilevers were focused-ion-beam milled and subsequently tested within a scanning electron microscope in the low cycle fatigue regime at strain amplitudes in the range of 1.1 − 3.2 ∗ 10 −3 . It was found...

The size-dependent elasticity of a series of nickel cantilever microbeams was investigated experimentally for the first time. The experimental results revealed that the dimensionless natural frequencies of the cantilever microbeams increase to about 2.1 times with the beam thickness decreasing from 15 to 2.1 μm. Furthermore, based on the strain gradient elasticity theory (SGT) and by using the differential quadrature method (DQM) and the least square method (LSM), the experimental results were i...

The experimental observations on dislocation structures in the micron-thick cantilever beam-type samples of copper single crystals subjected to symmetrically-reversed bending load and the theoretical simulations using the modified reaction–diffusion model were conducted. It was found that strain-gradient introduced by inhomogeneous deformation has a strong influence on dislocation patterning behavior, cyclic deformation response and fatigue life of the micron-thick copper single crystal beams. T...

In this paper, a novel size-dependent beam model made of functionally graded materials (FGMs) is developed based on the strain gradient elasticity theory and sinusoidal shear deformation theory. The material properties of the functionally graded (FG) microbeams are assumed to vary in the thickness direction and are estimated through the Mori–Tanaka homogenization technique. Governing equations and boundary conditions are derived simultaneously by using Hamilton’s principle. The new model contain...

Abstract The size effect, the passivation effect, and the plastic behavior under non-proportional loading in the context of bending and tension of thin foils, and a combination of compression and shear of constrained layers, are studied using Gudmundson’s higher-order strain gradient visco-plasticity theory. Bending experiments on thin nickel foils with and without passivation are performed with a load-unload technique. The passivated layer increases the flow stress significantly. Finite element...
