Experimental Research on Dynamic Mechanical Properties of 5083 Aluminum Alloy
5083 aluminum alloy was investigated with respect to its uniaxial dynamic compressive properties over a range of strain rates using the split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB). The dynamic stress-strain curves of this alloy were obtained for strain rates from 1000 s-1 to 6000 s-1. Effects of strain rate, the samples size and anti-impact capability were analyzed. The experimental results show that under impaction loading, 5083 aluminum alloy has a remarkable strengthening response to strain rate and size; in particular, the responded stress increases with increasing strain rate, which implies that this alloy has high strength and high anti-impact capability.
