Abstract Uniaxial compression, uniaxial tension, and new double shear experimental methods are used to study the effect of stress state on the mechanical behaviors of Ti-6Al-4V over a wide range of strain rates (0.001-6500s−1). The experimental results show that strain rate and stress state both have strong influences on the plastic flow and failure properties of the material. With an increasing strain rate, the work-hardening rate increases under uniaxial compression loading, but decreases under uniaxial tension and shear. Moreover, with the increase of strain rates, the initial failure strain increases under uniaxial tension, but decreases under the uniaxial compression conditions. Based on the experimental results, the Johnson-Cook (JC) hardening laws are used in finite element analysis (FEA) to simulate the mechanical responses of the material. It shows that the simulated results and the experimental data are in good agreement. The results indicate that the effects of strain rate and stress state should be considered in the constitutive model. Fractographic examinations are also conducted under different loading conditions. The failure processes of the material are controlled by different micro-mechanisms.

Abstract Shear failure is frequently accompanied with the formation of an adiabatic shear band (ASB) under dynamic loading condition. The results obtained by a previous study (Guo et al., 2019) indicate that temperature increase does not play a primary role in the formation of ASB. Moreover, the shear strain to ASB initiation is closely related to the stress state. In this paper, a hybrid experimental–numerical method is developed to evaluate quantitatively the effect of stress stare on the init...

Abstract A new kind of double-shear specimen (DSS) is used to study quasi-static and dynamic behaviors of Ti-6Al-4V under simple shear conditions. With different loading techniques, a wide range of shear strain rates are covered from 0.002 s−1 to 60,000 s−1. The flow stress curves are determined under different conditions. It's observed that the work-hardening effect on the flow stress is weakened gradually with the increasing strain rates. Both the yield stress and the failure initiation stress...

Abstract A new double shear specimen (DSS) is used to study the plastic flow behaviors and constitutive models of the 603 steel under shear loading. Shear stress-shear strain curves are obtained over large ranges of temperatures (93–673 K) and shear strain rates (0.001–35,000 s−1). The stress state effect on the plasticity of the material has been studied particularly through the comparison of the test results with the experimental data under uniaxial compression. An obvious elevation of the flo...

Abstract The plastic deformation and failure behavior of metals is significantly affected by loading conditions such as stress state, strain rate, temperature and etc. In this study, the tensile behavior of a dual-phase Ti-6Al-4V alloy was investigated and the influences of stress triaxiality, strain rate and temperature were characterized. Specimens with various initial stress triaxialities (0.33, 0.43, 0.52, 0.62, and 0.74 in this work) were designed and tested under quasi-static and dynamic t...

Abstract Ductile damage behavior of Ti-6Al-4V alloy was characterized by the evolution of flow curves and deformed specimens in compression tests at high strain rates and various temperatures. Cracks along the shear bands of deformed specimens were observed at lower temperatures (20 °C and 100 °C) and high strain rates (2500–10,000 s−1). The failure initial strains (FIS) during crack generation were calculated according to the measured flow stresses at the transition from stable plastic to damag...

Abstract The efficiency of the thermomechanical conversion, expressed as the Taylor–Quinney coefficient (TQC) is seldom reported in the literature and generally assumed to be equal to 0.9. Moreover, an eventual dependence of this coefficient on the dynamic loading mode has not been investigated so far. This work presents a systematic characterization of the TQC for seven different metals and alloys loaded in dynamic tension, compression and dominant shear. The results show that the TQC varies gr...

Abstract Static and dynamic experiments on sheet and bar titanium Ti6Al4V alloy are presented. Aiming at a comprehensive set of data on the materials damage and failure properties, different sample geometries and loading modes are considered. For the Ti6Al4V sheet, tensile loading of in-plane shear, two different in-plane tensile and plane strain samples are used, for the bar, tensile loading of cylindrical samples and torsion of thin-walled tubes. High strain rates, up to 1500 s −1 , are achiev...

Abstract In this paper, a new model based on the Johnson-Cook fracture criterion is proposed to predict the ductility of Ti6Al4V titanium alloy sheets deformed at wide range of temperatures (25–900 °C) and stress states. Experiments were carried out and strain at fracture recorded on samples of different shapes to cover various loading conditions: uniaxial tensile, shear and equi-biaxial plane stress tension. The stress triaxiality and the deviatoric effect were evaluated through numerical simul...

Abstract The failure of dual-phase alloys under tensile loading conditions is often due to the nucleation, growth and coalescence of voids at the interface between different phases from micromechanical point of view. The aim of this paper is to identify the failure mechanism and mode of dual-phase Ti-6Al-4V alloy in the form of plastic strain localization due to the incompatible deformation between the softer α phase and the harder β phase under the uniaxial tensile loading condition. The failur...

Abstract Pack rolling is an effective process for manufacturing Ti-6Al-4V products, especially thin sheets; however, it tends to cause surface defects. Surface ridging is the most significant surface defect produced during the pack rolling of thin sheets. Hence, in this study, the effects of pack-rolling conditions on the origin of surface ridging on Ti–6Al–4V alloy surfaces were investigated using experimental and numerical techniques. Pack rolling was carried out at temperatures of 830, 860, 9...

Abstract Due to the difficulties in decoupling of the strain rate and stress state effects at high strain rates, very few constitutive models can account for the both effects simultaneously. Based on a novel method in the determination of the shear behaviors and constitutive modeling of materials (J. Mech. Phys. Solids 129 (2019): 184–204)), this work aims to propose a plasticity model that considers not only the stress state effect, but also the effects of strain, strain rate, and temperature o...
