Critical Conditions for Failure in Materials Subjected to High Rates of Loading by Robert J Asaro( Book )

2 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamic shear band formation in steels has been investigated in torsional Kolsky bar experiments. Temperature profiles have been measured. Stress-time curves have been related to analytical predictions of localization in simple shear. Good agreement between theory and experiment is obtained when the effects of strain hardening, thermal softening, strain rate sensitivity, and geometric imperfections are included in the theory. The analysis of shear strain localization has been extended to the case of plane strain compression. Heat conduction has been included in the analysis of quasi-static deformations. Critical conditions for dynamic and quasi-static fracture initiation of AISI 1020 steel have been determined for three microstructures over the temperature range -150C to +150C. Fracture models for both cleavage fracture and ductile rupture have been developed for interpreting the observed behavior over the full range of temperatures and loading rates. The effect of loading rate on th fracture toughness of 4340 VAR steel has been investigated through experiments involving explosive loading of notched tensile bars and through plate impact experiments on pre-cracked plates. Numerical methods have been developed for the interpretation of the plate impact experiments. Analytical methods have been developed for understanding the effects of strong strain-rate sensitivity on dynamic crack propagation

The Micromechanics of Deformation and Failure in Metal-Matrix Composites( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Metals reinforced with ceramic fibers or particulates are promising materials for use in new generations of aerospace structures, propulsion devices and energy conversion systems. Furthermore, the controllability of many of these variables opens up the possibility of engineering materials for specific applications, if the effects of alterations in microstructure can be predicted. However, metal-matrix composites often have low ductility and low fracture toughness. An improved understanding of the basic deformation and failure mechanisms is needed to overcome these problems. To this end, research was carried out in three areas: (1) continuum modeling of deformation and fracture in metal-matrix composites, including the interaction between failure mechanisms using phenomenological constitutive relations to characterize each of the main failure modes in metal-matrix composites, reinforcement cracking, interfacial debonding and matrix void nucleation, growth and coalescence; (2) numerical studies of the propagation of fast cracks along and across interfaces, with a particular focus on understanding crack propagation from a brittle phase into a ductile phase; and (3) discrete dislocation modeling of matrix plastic deformation in metal-matrix composites with micron size reinforcements

Virtual Design and Testing of Materials: A Multiscale Approach( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of the work proposed here is the development of a virtual testing and design capability that can be used to test -- and suggest design strategies for -- new advanced structural materials. Our main objective is thus to develop a hierarchy of methods involving both seamless coupling of information from different scales (electronic to atomic; atomic to microstructural; micro- to macrostructural) and information transfer from one level of hierarchy to the next. As a secondary objective, each methodological advance will also be used to investigate specific phenomena at a single scale. The overall outcome of our work will be a coherent set of computational tools and advances in fundamental understanding of many issues in the thermomechanical performance of materials
