Paper Title:
Research on Mode I and Mode II Dynamic Fracture in High Strength Steels under High Loading Rates
  Abstract

The Mode I and Mode II dynamic fracture toughness (DFT) values, KId and KIId for high strength steels 40Cr and 30CrMnSiNi2A were evaluated using a combined experimental-numerical method. The tests were performed on three point bend (3PB) and shear specimens with Hopkinson pressure bar. The time of crack initiation was determined by a strain gauge. With the assistance of 3-D transient finite element analysis, the temporal evolution of the dynamic stress intensity factor under different loading rates was obtained, and the DFT was determined by the fracture initiation time. In Mode I tests, a brittle transgranular fracture was found in 40Cr, while evidence for ductile fracture was observed on the failure surface of 30CrMnSiNi2A. In Mode II tests, both tensile cracks and adiabatic shear bands were found for the two steels. The effect of ligament size on fracture toughness was discussed. The correlations of KId and KIId with loading rate were also investigated. The micromechanisms of loading rate effect on the DFT were discussed for both modes.
