2 Mechanical Properties of Materials Stiffness Strength ductility Toughness Resistance to elastic deformation Young’s modulus Resistance to plastic deformation Yield stress Resistance to fractureEnergy to fracture Ability to deform plastically Strain to fracture

3 Uniaxial Tensile Test (Experiment 6) Gauge length specimen

4 Result of a uniaxial tensile test Slope = Young’s modulus (Y)  UTS Ultimate tensile strength yy Yield strength  (Engineering stress)  (engineering strain)  f (strain to fracture) necking Area = Toughness elastic plastic break Yield point STIFFNESS STRENGTH DUCTILITY

5 If there is a smooth transition from elastic to plastic region (no distinct yield point) then 0.2 % offset proof stress is used

6 During uniaxial tensile test the length of the specimen is continually increasing and the cross-sectional area is decreasing. True stress ≠ Engineering stress (  =F/A 0 ) True strain ≠ Engineering strain (  =  L/L 0 ) True stressA i = instantaneous area True incremental strain True strain Eqn Eqn. 11.4

8 What happens during plastic deformation? Externally, permanent shape change begins at  y Internally, what happens?

9 What happens to crystal structure after plastic deformation? ? Plastic Deformation

10 Some Possible answers Remains the same Changes to another crystal structure Becomes random or amorphous

11 How Do We Decide? X-ray diffraction No change in crystal structure ! No change in internal crystal structure but change in external shape!!

12 How does the microstructure of polycrystal changes during plastic deformation? EXPERIMENT 5 Comparison of undeformed Cu and deformed Cu

19 Why slip planes are usually close packed planes? Why slip directions are close-packed directions?

21 Tensile vs Shear Stress Plastic deformation takes place by slip Slip requires shear stress Then, how does plastic deformation take place during a tensile test?

22  N D     : Applied tensile stress N: Slip plane normal D: Slip direction   : angle between  and N    =angle between  and D Is there any shear stress on the slip plane in the slip direction due to the applied tensile stress?

24 F F F F No resolved shear stress on planes parallel or perpendicular to the stress axis cos  2 = 0 cos  1 = 0

25 Plastic deformation recap No change in crystal structure: slip twinning Slip takes place on slip systems (plane + direction) Slip planes usually close-packed planes Slip directions usually close-packed direction Slip requires shear stress In uniaxial tension there is a shear component of tensile stress on the slip plane in the slip direction: RESOLVED SHEAR STRESS


27 Lec

28 If we change the direction of stress with respect to the slip plane and the slip direction cos  1 cos  2 will change. 1.  CRSS changes. To maintain the equality which of the following changes takes place? 2.  y changes Schmid’s Law:  CRSS is a material constant.

29 Anisotropy of Yield Stress Yield stress of a single crystal depends upon the direction of application of load cos  1 cos  2 is called the Schmid factor

30 Active slip system Slip system with highest Schmid factor is the active slip system

53 Movement of an Edge Dislocation A unit slip takes place only when the dislocation comes out of the crystal

54 During plastic deformation dislocation density of a crystal should go down Experimental Result Dislocation Density of a crystal actually goes up Well-annealed crystal: m -2 Lightly cold-worked: m -2 Heavily cold-worked: m -2 ?

60 During plastic deformation dislocation density increases. Dislocations are the cause of weakness of real crystals Thus as a result of plastic deformation the crystal should weaken. However, plastic deformation increases the yield strength of the crystal: strain hardening or work hardening ?

74 Science 5 April 2002: Vol. 296 no pp POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIALS Grain Boundaries and Dislocations The hardness of coarse-grained materials is inversely proportional to the square root of the grain size. But as Van Swygenhoven explains in her Perspective, at nanometer scale grain sizes this relation no longer holds. Atomistic simulations are providing key insights into the structural and mechanical properties of nanocrystalline metals, shedding light on the distinct mechanism by which these materials deform.

109 Creep Creep is time dependent plastic deformation at constant load or stress It is a “high temperature” deformation T m is the m.p. in K. Difference between normal plastic deformation and creep ?

112 Creep Dislocation climb Vacancy diffusion Cross-slip Grain boundary sliding Creep Mechanisms of crystalline materials

113 Cross-slip  In the low temperature of creep → screw dislocations can cross-slip (by thermal activation) and can give rise to plastic strain [as f(t)] b Slip plane 1 Slip plane 2

114 Dislocation climb  Edge dislocations piled up against an obstacle can climb to another slip plane and cause plastic deformation [as f(t), in response to stress]  Rate controlling step is the diffusion of vacancies

115 Diffusional creep  In response to the applied stress vacancies preferentially move from surfaces/interfaces (GB) of specimen transverse to the stress axis to surfaces/interfaces parallel to the stress axis→ causing elongation  This process like dislocation creep is controlled by the diffusion of vacancies → but diffusional does not require dislocations to operate  Flow of vacancies Coble creep → low T → Due to GB diffusion Nabarro-Herring creep → high T → lattice diffusion

116 Grain boundary sliding  At low temperatures the grain boundaries are ‘stronger’ than the crystal interior and impede the motion of dislocations  Being a higher energy region, the grain boundaries melt before the crystal interior  Above the equicohesive temperature grain boundaries are weaker than grain and slide past one another to cause plastic deformation

117 117 Starter: initiates columnar grains as in Directional Solidification (DS) Pigtail: a helical channel which gradually eliminates most columnar grains Single crystal turbine blade Single crystal blade: best creep resistance

118 118 Coarser grains -> Less grain boundaries -> Better for creep application Single Crystal -> No grain boundaries -> Best for creep application Nanocrystalline materials -> not good for creep applications!

121 121 NiCrAlY or NiCoCrAlY Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) Ceramic top coat: Yittria stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) 1.Low thermal conductivity 2. High thermal expansion 3.High M.P Reduction in surface temp o C Operating temp > M.P. (~1300 o C)

122 Creep Resistant Materials  Higher operating temperatures gives better efficiency for a heat engine Creep resistance Dispersion hardening → ThO 2 dispersed Ni (~0.9 T m ) Solid solution strengthening High melting point → E.g. Ceramics Single crystal / aligned (oriented) grains

123  Cost, fabrication ease, density etc. are other factors which determine the final choice of a material  Commonly used materials → Fe, Ni, Co base alloys  Precipitation hardening (instead of dispersion hardening) is not a good method as particles coarsen (smaller particles dissolve and larger particles grow  interparticle separation ↑)  Ni-base superalloys have Ni 3 (Ti,Al) precipitates which form a low energy interface with the matrix  low driving force for coarsening  Cold work cannot be used for increasing creep resistance as recrystallization can occur which will produced strain free crystals  Fine grain size is not desirable for creep resistance → grain boundary sliding can cause creep elongation / cavitation ► Single crystals (single crystal Ti turbine blades in gas turbine engine have been used) ► Aligned / oriented polycrystals
