Crystal Plasticity Analysis of Scale Effect on Tensile Properties of Ferrite/Cementite Fine Lamellar Structure under Lattice Strain
Tensile properties of ferrite lamella in pearlite under lattice strain are examined by a strain gradient crystal plasticity analysis. Tensile direction is made to be parallel to the lamella. Obtained results of macroscopic stress-strain relation of the lamella show significant increase of yield stress and strain hardening rate with the reduction of the lamella thickness and further increase of the yield stress with positive normal lattice strain parallel to the tensile direction in the ferrite layer. Whereas normal lattice strain perpendicular to the tensile direction contributes little to the tensile properties.
