Paper Title:
Finite-Element Simulations of Split Hopkinson Test of Ti-Based Alloy
  Abstract

Ti-based alloys are extensively used in aerospace and other advanced engineering fields due to their high strength and toughness, light weight, excellent corrosion resistance and ability to withstand extreme temperatures. Since these alloys are hard to machine, there is an obvious demand to develop simulation tools in order to analyse the material's behaviour during machining and thus optimise the entire machining process. The deformation processes in machining of Ti-alloys are typically characterized by high strains and temperatures. A Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) technique is a commonly used experimental method to characterize a material`s behaviour at high strain rates; a stress-strain relation of the material is derived from the obtained experimental data. A computational study on a three-dimensional finite element model of the SHPB experiment is performed to assess various features of the underlying mechanics of deformation processes at high-strain and -strain-rate regimes. In the numerical analysis, an inhomogeneous deformation behaviour is observed in the workpiece at the initial stages of compression contrary to a standard assumption of stress and strain homogeneity in the specimen.
