Dynamic Strain Aging during Low Cycle Fatigue Deformation in Prior Cold Worked 316L Stainless Steel
Low cycle fatigue (LCF) tests were carried out in a wide temperature range (20°C-650°C)at strain rates of 1×10-4/s-1×10-2/s for 17% cold worked (CW) 316L stainless steel to investigate the conditions for the occurrence of dynamic strain aging (DSA) and its effects on material properties during LCF deformation. DSA introduced anomalous changes of LCF properties, and the DSA regime under LCF loading condition coincided with that in tensile loading condition. During LCF deformation, dynamic stain aging can be manifested in the forms of the occurrence of the plateau or the peak in the variation of cyclic peak stress with temperature, the negative temperature dependence of plastic strain amplitude or softening ratio, the negative strain rate sensitivity, and the negative strain rate dependence of plastic strain amplitude or softening ratio.
