12 Sources of  and How It Relates to Fatigue Damage in Metallic Materials Residual Plasticity Discrete Dislocations Nonlinear Parameter  Physics/microstructure based. Relate  to plastic strain (phenomenological) Crystal plasticity Third order elastic (TOE) constants

13 Lattice Anharmonicity Deformation of crystal lattice, even within the elastic range, is not ideally linear. This slight deviation from linearity yields where C 111 is the third order elastic constant (TOE), and C 11 is the (second order) elastic constant. For single crystal Ni Granato, A. V. and Lucke, K. (1956), J. Appl. Phys. 27:

14 Dislocation Monopoles A dislocation loop with length L pinned at both ends subjected to harmonic excitation Im{  } – attenuation; Re{  } – higher order harmonics  m = dislocation (monopole) density G = shear modulus  = Schmid factor b = Burgers vector Hikata, A., Chick, B. B. and Elbaum, C. (1965), J. Appl. Phys. 36: Hikata, A. and Elbaum, C. (1966), Phys. Rev Hikata, A., Sewell, F. A. and Elbdum, C. (1966), Phys. Rev. 151: Cantrell, J. H. (2004), Proc. Roy. Soc. Lond. A 460:

15 Dislocation Dipoles/Precipitates h  d = dislocation (dipole) density h = dipole height Precipitates r = radius of precipitates  = lattice misfit parameter between the precipitate and the matrix (coherency) = Poisson’s ratio f p = volume fraction of precipitates dislocation precipitate Dipoles

17 Before fatigueAfter N cycles Plasticity and  plastically deformed grains Deformation during Fatigue, Creep (Dislocation motions) Plasticity in Grains: Residual Stress Plastic Strain Change in 2 nd & 3 rd order elastic constants Material Nonlinearity  C (3) /C (2) Plasticity Simulation Nonlinear Acoustic Measurements  Kim, J. Y., Qu, J., Jacobs, L. J., Littles, J. W. and Savage, M. F. (2006), J. Nondestructive Evaluation 25:

18 An Example (FEM Simulations were conducted by Dr. McDowell’s group) Inelastic Strain Contour Output Data: IN100;  max = 0.1% yield strain; R=0.05; 18x18x18 mesh; 216 grains; ran 10 cycles Saturation of plastic strain

19 loading Wave propagation Grains that have initial (after 10 cycles) strain above the threshold strain are assumed to accumulate plastic strain Residual stress is assumed to be constant after 10 cycles Predicted Material Nonlinearity Fatigue life,

20 ~0.2N f Strain controlled to 110% yield Comparison low cycle fatigue IN100

21 Third Order Elastic Constants (TOE) and  For isotropic nonlinear materials: l, m, n Other waves (Rayleigh, Lamb, etc) are combinations of u x and u y. Shear wave by itself does not produce 2 nd order harmonics. Shear wave does produce 2 nd order harmonics in the presence of longitudinal waves. Such interaction is a challenge/opportunity to obtain TOE TOE can be related to plasticity.

22 22 Summary and Conclusions Significant increase in the acoustic nonlinearity parameter,  associated with the high plasticity of low cycle fatigue The acoustic nonlinearity parameter,  can be used to quantitatively characterize the damage state of a specimen at the early stages of fatigue Potential to use measured  versus fatigue life data to potentially serve as a master curve for life prediction based on nonlinear ultrasound Sensitivity versus selectivity: potential to distinguish the different mechanisms of damage

23 23 Next Step Is there a simplified universal relationship that can relate the different measurements and betas? Experimental evidence shows that changes in nonlinear parameters are intrinsic to the material, in spite of having 3 different nonlinear parameters. We hypothesize that the procedure can be simplified by introducing a universal “normalization” parameter.
