Anelastic Properties of Polycrystalline Copper
An attempt has been made to measure the temperature dependence of dynamic Young's modulus together with the related variation of internal friction in polycrystalline copper. A mechanical spectroscopy study was used a standard servo hydraulic fatigue testing machine equipped with a scanning laser extensometer. Dynamic Young’s modulus and internal friction are measured over a temperature range of 298 to 873K at very low frequencies of 0.1, 0.05 and 0.01Hz. One internal friction peak was observed over the ranges 450K to 700K, together with marked decreases in the dynamic Young.s modulus in the same temperature ranges. From a quantitative analysis of the experimental data with the relaxation strength, relaxation time and activation energy, it is concluded that the peak phenomenon is due to grain-boundary sliding relaxation.
