Impact of the Strain Rate during Tension Test on 46Cr1 Steel Temperature Change


Article Preview

The aim of this paper was to assess influence of the strain rate on the specimen temperature change during monotonic tensile test. Based on the assessment of this change under variable strain rate, it was determined the level of internal specimen energy change. The assessment to extent to which the adiabatic testing conditions were maintained was made based on this results.
