Comparison of Dynamic Mechanical Properties between Pure Iron (BCC) and Fe-30Mn-3Si-4Al TWIP Steel (FCC)
Dynamic mechanical properties and microstructures of pure iron and Fe-30Mn-3Si-4Al TWIP (TWinning Induced Plasticity) steel were conducted by SHPB (Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar), OM (Optical Microscopy) and TEM (Transmission Electron Microscope), at the strain rate ranging from 102 to 105 s-1 and at room temperature. The effect of high strain rate on the mechanical responses of pure iron and Fe-30Mn-3Si-4Al TWIP steel belonging to BCC (Body Centered Cubic) and FCC (Face Centered Cubic) structures respectively was evaluated. The comparison of deformation mechanism was analyzed between them and it concluded that dislocation gliding is a major deformation mechanism in pure iron with BCC structure and deformation twinning plays a significant role in Fe-30Mn-3Si-4Al TWIP steel with FCC structure.
