Dr. R. Lindeke, Ph.D.

2 Chapter 6: Behavior Of Material Under Mechanical Loads = Mechanical Properties.
Stress and strain: What are they and why are they used instead of load and deformation Elastic behavior: Recoverable Deformation of small magnitude Plastic behavior: Permanent deformation We must consider which materials are most resistant to permanent deformation? Toughness and ductility: Defining how much energy that a material can take before failure. How do we measure them? Hardness: How we measure hardness and its relationship to material strength

3 Stress-Strain: Testing Uses Standardized methods developed by ASTM for Tensile Tests it is ASTM E8
• Typical tensile test machine • Typical tensile specimen (ASTM A-bar) gauge length specimen extensometer Adapted from Fig. 6.3, Callister 7e. (Fig. 6.3 is taken from H.W. Hayden, W.G. Moffatt, and J. Wulff, The Structure and Properties of Materials, Vol. III, Mechanical Behavior, p. 2, John Wiley and Sons, New York, 1965.)

4 Comparison of Units: SI and Engineering Common (in US)
Eng. Common Force Newton (N) Pound-force (lbf) Area mm2 or m2 in2 Stress Pascal (N/m2) or MPa (106 pascals) psi (lbf/in2) or Ksi (1000 lbf/in2) Strain (Unitless!) mm/mm or m/m in/in Conversion Factors SI to Eng. Common Eng. Common to SI N*4.448 = lbf Lbf* = N Area I mm2* = in2 in2 *1.55x10-3 = mm2 Area II m2 *1550 = in2 in2* 6.452x10-4 = m2 Stress I - a Pascal * 1.450x10-4 = psi psi * = Pascal Stress I - b Pascal * 1.450x10-7 = Ksi Ksi * x106 = Pascal Stress II - a MPa * = psi psi * 6.89x 10-3 = MPa Stress II - b MPa * x 10-1= Ksi Ksi * 6.89 = MPa One other conversion: 1 GPa = 103 MPa

5 The Engineering Stress - Strain curve
Divided into 2 regions ELASTIC PLASTIC

6 we can also see the symbol ‘s’ used for engineering stress
• Tensile stress, s: original area before loading Area, A F t s = A o 2 f m N or in lb • Shear stress, t: Area, A F t s = A o  Stress has units: N/m2 (MPa) or lbf/in2 we can also see the symbol ‘s’ used for engineering stress

7 Common States of Stress
• Simple tension: cable A o = cross sectional area (when unloaded) F o s = F A s Ski lift (photo courtesy P.M. Anderson) • Torsion (a form of shear): drive shaft M A o 2R F s c o t = F s A Note: t = M/AcR here. Where M is the “Moment” Ac shaft area & R shaft radius

8 Linear: Elastic Properties
• Modulus of Elasticity, E: (also known as Young's modulus) Units: E: [GPa] or [psi] • Hooke's Law: s = E e F A o d /2 L Lo w s Linear- elastic E e Here: The Black Outline is Original, Green is after application of load

9 Typical Example: Aluminum tensile specimen, square X-Section (16.5 mm on a side) and 150 mm long Pulled in tension to a load of N Experiences elongation of: 0.43 mm Determine Young’s Modulus if all the deformation is recoverable

12 Solving:

• Simple compression: A o Balanced Rock, Arches National Park (photo courtesy P.M. Anderson) Canyon Bridge, Los Alamos, NM o s = F A Note: compressive structure member (s < 0 here). (photo courtesy P.M. Anderson)

• Bi-axial tension: • Hydrostatic compression: Fish under water Pressurized tank (photo courtesy P.M. Anderson) (photo courtesy P.M. Anderson) s z > 0 q s < 0 h

15 Engineering Strain (resulting from engineering stress):
• Tensile (parallel to load) strain: • Lateral (Normal to load) strain: d /2 L o w e = d L o - d e L = w o Here: The Black Outline is Original, Green is after application of load • Shear strain: q Strain is always Dimensionless! x q g = Dx/y = tan y 90º - q 90º We often see the symbol ‘e’ used for engineering strain

16 Figure The Poisson’s ratio (ν) characterizes the contraction perpendicular to the extension caused by a tensile stress. metals: n  0.33 ceramics: n  0.25 polymers: n  0.40

17 Other Elastic Properties
simple torsion test M t G g • Elastic Shear modulus, G: t = G g • Elastic Bulk modulus, K: pressure test: Init. vol =Vo. Vol chg. = DV P P = - K D V o • Special relations for isotropic materials: 2(1 + n) E G = 3(1 - 2n) K E is Modulus of Elasticity  is Poisson’s Ratio


19 Figure The Yield Strength is defined relative to the intersection of the stress–strain curve with a “0.2% offset.” Yield strength is a convenient indication of the onset of plastic deformation.

20 Figure For a low-carbon steel, the stress-versus-strain curve includes both an upper and lower yield point.

21 Figure Elastic recovery occurs when stress is removed from a specimen that has already undergone plastic deformation.

36 TOUGHNESS Is a measure of the ability of a material to absorb energy up to fracture High toughness = High yield strength and ductility Important Factors in determining Toughness: 1. Specimen Geometry & 2. Method of load application Dynamic (high strain rate) loading condition (Impact test) 1. Specimen with notch- Notch toughness 2. Specimen with crack- Fracture toughness Static (low strain rate) loading condition (tensile stress-strain test) 1. Area under stress vs strain curve up to the point of fracture.

37 Figure 6.9 The toughness of an alloy depends on a combination of strength and ductility.

38 Toughness – Generally considering various materials
• Energy to break a unit volume of material • Approximate by the area under the stress-strain curve. very small toughness (unreinforced polymers) Engineering tensile strain, e E ngineering tensile stress, s small toughness (ceramics) large toughness (metals) Adapted from Fig. 6.13, Callister 7e. Brittle fracture: elastic energy Ductile fracture: elastic + plastic energy

39 Deformation Mechanisms – from Macro-results to Micro-causes
Slip Systems Slip plane - plane allowing easiest slippage Wide interplanar spacings - highest planar densities Slip direction - direction of movement - Highest linear densities FCC Slip occurs on {111} planes (close-packed) in <110> directions (close-packed) => total of 12 slip systems in FCC in BCC & HCP other slip systems occur Adapted from Fig. 7.6, Callister 7e.

Figure Sliding of one plane of atoms past an adjacent one. This high-stress process is necessary to plastically (permanently) deform a perfect crystal.


42 Stress and Dislocation Motion
• Crystals slip due to a resolved shear stress, tR. • Applied tension can produce such a stress. Applied tensile stress: = F/A s direction slip F A slip plane normal, ns Resolved shear stress: tR = F s /A direction slip AS FS direction slip Relation between s and tR = FS /AS F cos l A / f nS AS Note: By definition  is the angle between the stress direction and Slip direction;  is the angle between the normal to slip plane and stress direction

43 Critical Resolved Shear Stress
• Condition for dislocation motion: 10-4 GPa to 10-2 GPa typically • Crystal orientation can make it easy or hard to move dislocation tR = 0 l =90° s tR = s /2 l =45° f tR = 0 f =90° s

44 Generally: Resolved  (shear stress) is maximum at  =  = 45 And CRSS = y/2 for dislocations to move (in single crystals)

45 Determining  and  angles for Slip in Crystals (single X-tals this is easy!)
 and  angles are respectively angle between tensile direction and Normal to Slip plane and angle between tensile direction and slip direction (these slip directions are material dependent) In General for cubic xtals, angles between directions are given by: Thus for metals we compare Slip System (normal to slip plane is a direction with exact indices as plane) to applied tensile direction using this equation to determine the values of  and  to plug into the R equation to determine if slip is expected As we saw earlier!

46 Slip Motion in Polycrystals
300 mm • Stronger since grain boundaries pin deformations • Slip planes & directions (l, f) change from one crystal to another. • tR will vary from one • The crystal with the largest tR yields first. • Other (less favorably oriented) crystals yield (slip) later. (courtesy of C. Brady, National Bureau of Standards [now the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD].)

47 After seeing the effect of poly crystalline materials we can say (as related to strength):
Ordinarily ductility is sacrificed when an alloy is strengthened. The relationship between dislocation motion and mechanical behavior of metals is significance to the understanding of strengthening mechanisms. The ability of a metal to plastically deform depends on the ability of dislocations to move. Virtually all strengthening techniques rely on this simple principle: Restricting or Hindering dislocation motion renders a material harder and stronger. We will consider strengthening single phase metals by: grain size reduction, solid-solution alloying, and strain hardening

48 Hardness • Resistance to permanently (plastically) indenting the surface of a product. • Large hardness means: --resistance to plastic deformation or cracking in compression. --better wear properties. e.g., Hardened 10 mm sphere apply known force measure size of indentation after removing load d D Smaller indents mean larger hardness. increasing hardness most plastics brasses Al alloys easy to machine steels file hard cutting tools nitrided diamond Hardness tests cause deformation that is the same as tensile testing – but are non-destructive and cheap to perform

49 Hardness: Common Measurement Systems

50 Comparing Hardness Scales:

51 Correlation Between Hardness and Tensile Strength
Both measures the resistance to plastic deformation of a material.

52 Figure 6. 29 (a) Plot of data from Table 6. 10
Figure (a) Plot of data from Table A general trend of BHN with T.S. is shown. (b) A more precise correlation of BHN with T.S. (or Y.S.) is obtained for given families of alloys. [Part (b) from Metals Handbook, 9th ed., Vol. 1, American Society for Metals, Metals Park, OH, 1978.]

53 HB = Brinell Hardness TS (psia) = 500 x HB TS (MPa) = 3.45 x HB


Inaccuracies in Rockwell (Brinell) hardness measurements may occur due to: An indentation is made too near a specimen edge. Two indentations are made too close to one another. Specimen thickness should be at least ten times the indentation depth. Allowance of at least three indentation diameters between the center on one indentation and the specimen edge, or to the center of a second indentation. Testing of specimens stacked one on top of another is not recommended. Indentation should be made into a smooth flat surface.

56 Mechanical Properties - Ceramics
We know that ceramics are more brittle than metals. Why? Consider method of deformation slippage along slip planes in ionic solids this slippage is very difficult too much energy needed to move one anion past another anion (like charges repel)

57 Measuring Ceramic Strength: Elastic Modulus
• Room T behavior is usually elastic, with brittle failure. • 3-Point Bend Testing often used. --tensile tests are difficult for brittle materials!

59 Mechanical Issues: Properties are significantly dependent on processing – and as it relates to the level of Porosity: E = E0(1-1.9P+0.9P2) – P is fraction porosity fs = 0e-nP -- 0 & n are empirical values Because the very unpredictable nature of ceramic defects, we do not simply add a factor of safety for tensile loading We may add compressive surface loads We often choose to avoid tensile loading at all – most ceramic loading of any significance is compressive (consider buildings, dams, brigdes and roads!)
