Dynamic Evaluation of Strength-Structure Properties by the Determination of Activation Volume and Mean Slip Distance

Abstract:

Article Preview

Measurements of the activation volume and mean slip distance were used in the dynamic dislocation-defect analysis to reveal the dislocation-obstacle evolution with strain. Due to the large effect of point defect mobility above 250 K on the strain rate sensitivity, fine-grained Al specimens with the grain-boundaries sealed and unsealed as vacancy sinks were tested at 300 K as the reference behaviour. The activation distance diagrams revealed that the artificially aged products in AA6111 and naturally aged extruded AA6063 can be used to examine the effect of chopping-up of particles on the ductility of the samples. Thus a means to examine strength-structure-ductility of specific products have been devised.
