Abstract: To understand the free surface roughening phenomena of polycrystalline metals, the surface roughening behaviors of three kinds of metal sheets were investigated under uniaxial tension. The materials used were AZ31 magnesium alloy, SPFC 590Y steel, and A5052-O aluminum alloy. In the in-situ observation of surface roughening for AZ31 magnesium alloy, it seemed that the surface of each grain roughened independently and the roughness increases with increasing plastic strain. In contrast to A5052-O and SPFC, the anisotropy of free surface roughening was observed for AZ31 magnesium alloy. Compared with planar anisotropy , the microscopic anisotropy of surface roughening is not related to . In AZ31 magnesium alloy, the anisotropy of surface roughening arises and, instead of the r-value, another parameter is needed to evaluate the anisotropy of free surface roughening.

Abstract: A constitutive model is proposed to simulate the completely deformation process of rocks under uniaxial tension. Based on the revised elastic modulus method derived from the hypothesis of strain equivalence, we analyzed the relationship between the damage variable and the strain. It is found that the relation can be modeled using a sigmoid curve. This model can describe the complete deformation process of rocks under uniaxial tension satisfactorily. In particular, the nonlinearity near the peak in the pre-peak region is accurately captured by the proposed constitutive model. The rapid decrease of rock strength after peak load can also be captured satisfactorily. The used mathematical function is simple and the damage evolution process is clear. The validity of the model is verified using laboratory test data.

Abstract: Molecular Dynamics (MD) are now having orthodox means for simulation of matter in nano-scale. It can be regarded as an accurate alternative for experimental work in nano-science. In this paper, Molecular Dynamics simulation of uniaxial tension of some face centered cubic (FCC) metals (namely Au, Ag, Cu and Ni) at nano-level have been carried out. Sutton-Chen potential functions and velocity Verlet formulation of Noise-Hoover dynamic as well as periodic boundary conditions were applied. MD simulations at different loading rates and temperatures were conducted, and it was concluded that by increasing the temperature, maximum engineering stress decreases while engineering strain at failure is increasing. On the other hand, by increasing the loading rate both maximum engineering stress and strain at failure are increasing.

Abstract: According to the Sentmanat Extensional Rheometer (SER) and its Universal Testing Platform, a uniaxial tensile method and its device design scheme based on single rotary drum applied for polymer films is proposed in the paper, which will be used to characterize mechanical properties of various types of plastic films under wider temperatures and constant Hencky strain rates. Basic principal and device design ideas are discussed with formula derivation and figures, which provides references to develop the related fixture and carry out some relevant experiments for future.

Abstract: An improved two-dimensional constitutive model for shape memory alloys (SMAs), which can describe both the shape memory effect (SME) and super elasticity effect (SE) of the SMAs, is developed in the paper based on the previous work of Boyd and Lagoudas, who used the thermodynamics theories of free energy and dissipation energy to derive the constitutive law of the SMAs. The improved model, which will combine the ideas of Brinsion’s one-dimensional constitutive law and the concepts of Boyd and Lagoudas’ two-dimensional one, has a simple but accurate expression. Two examples are used to numerically validate the efficiency of the improved model and the results of the simulations show that the developed constitutive model can qualitatively describe the thermo-mechanical behaviors of two-dimensional SMAs.

Abstract: Hyperelastic material simulation is necessary for proper testing of products functionality in cases where prototype testing is expensive or not possible. Hyperelastic material is nonlinear and more than one stress-strain response of the material is required for its characterization. The study was focused on prediction of hyperelastic behavior of rubber neglecting the viscoelastic and creep effects in rubber. To obtain the stress strain response of rubber, uniaxial and biaxial tension tests were performed. The data obtained from these tests was utilized to find the coefficients of Mooney-Rivlin, Odgen and Arruda Boyce models. Verification of the behavior as predicted by the fitted models was carried out by comparing the experimental data of a planar shear test with its simulation using the same constitutive models.

Abstract: This paper describes the creep deformation behavior of catheter which is made of soft nylon resin and is reinforced with thin stainless wires called braid. In this research, the creep deformation behavior of uniaxial tension generated under two-stage step stress is examined as the most fundamental case that the principal axis of stress is fixed in a space. And the mechanical model, which is composed of a Voigt unit and a single spring element, is proposed for representing the creep deformation behavior. Then, the numerical simulation is carried out, and the validity of this model is verified by comparing the analytical results with the experimental results under two-stage step stress.

Abstract: Evolution of localized plastic deformation in tri-layered metal material casting consistng of the working part (layer) from austenitic stainless steel and bearing part from low-carbon steel was investigated. The pictures of localization of the plastic flow during the process of uniaxial tension were obtained by means of the digital image correlation method (DIC). Using optical microscopy methods, the changes in the fracture surface were investigated. The deformation diagrams were examined for deformed samples of tri-layered metal. These were found to show all the plastic flow stages: the linear, parabolic and pre-failure stages would occur for the respective values of the exponent n from the Lüdwik-Holomon equation. The analysis of the plastic flow stages and localized plastic deformation parameters was performed.

Abstract: Uniaxial tension tests for galvanized steel sheets are performed. Fractured surfaces of the specimens are observed by means of the scanning electron microscope (SEM). It is confirmed that the specimens experience ductile fracture. Based on the Gurson meso-damage theory, Hill’48-GTN anisotropic damage model is presented, and used to analyze the uniaxial tension test. The true stress-strain curves are fitted by three kinds of main flow stress models. After comparing the fitting precisions, the Voce model is selected as the flow stress model for the simulation analysis. The simulation results show that the Hill’48-GTN model can be used to accurately predict the whole process of damage occurrence, evolution and fracture in tension, and void volume fraction can be taken as a forming limit parameter of sheet metal forming.

Abstract: The orientation rotation in extruded Mg alloy AZ31B sheets during uniaxial tension at room temperature has been investigated using SEM/EBSD technique. According to the experimental results and the calculated results of Sachs crystal model, the quantitative rule of the tensile axis rotation for the grains (parent), and the associated slip systems have been analyzed in detail. The influencing factors of twinning area fraction have also been studied. The results show that the rule of the rotation of tensile axis can be explained by cross slip systems; the grains with different initial orientations exhibit different twinning behaviors; the area fractions of extensive twins have a close relationship with Schmid factors of tensile twinning, and with the angle between c-axis and tensile axis of the grains.
