Investigation on Deformation in ZK60 at High Strain Rate


Article Preview

Split Hopkinson Pressure Bars (SHPB) was applied to investigate shock resistance of magnesium alloy. The deformation behaviour was reported of ZK60 magnesium alloy at high strain rate, and the relationship was established between the dynamic properties and the impact velocity. Results indicate: with impact velocity improvement, much twinned crystal and fine grain can be obtianed, this made dynamic properties enhancement of ZK60 alloy.
