Temperature-Dependent Tension Plastic Deformation and Fracture Behavior of Ti-6.6Al-3.3Mo-1.8Zr-0.29Si Alloy at High Strain Rates
Titanium alloys have received great interest in the engineering applications requiring light weight and high impact resistance components. It is necessary to understand the mechanical properties of titanium alloys at high strain rates and various temperatures in the structural design. In the present paper, uniaxial tension tests at strain rates of 190, 500 and 1150s-1 and temperatures of 20, 150, 300°C are carried out using a modified split hopkinson tension bar system to investigate the effects of strain rate and temperature on tension behavior of the Ti-6.6Al-3.3Mo-1.8Zr-0.29Si alloy. Experimental results indicate that the alloy has the rate and temperature sensitivity and still keeps high strengths and toughness at temperature up to 300°C under high strain rate. SEM observations reveal that ductile fracture is the major fracture mode when the alloy is deformed at high strain rates.
