Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Mode I Fracture Behavior in Magnesium Single Crystals
Magnesium alloys, owing to their low density and high specific strength, are potential candidates for structural applications in automotive and aerospace industry. While considerable research effort has been devoted in ...
Numerical Studies On Ductile Fracture Of Pressure Sensitive Plastic Solids
Experimental studies have shown that the yield strength of many important engineering materials such as polymers, ceramics and metallic glasses is dependent on hydrostatic stress. In addition, these materials may also ...
Constraint Effects On Stationary Crack Tip Fields In Ductile Single Crystals
In order to understand and predict the fracture behaviour of polycrystalline materials from a fundamental perspective, it is important to first investigate plastic deformation at a crack tip in a ductile single crystal. ...
Novel Compression Fracture Specimens And Analysis of Photoelastic Isotropic Points
Compression fracture specimens are ideally suited for miniaturization down to tens of microns. Fracture testing of thermal barrier coatings, ceramics and glasses are also best accomplished under compression or indentation. ...
Crack Tip Fields And Mechanisms Of Fracture In Ductile FCC Single Crystals
An understanding of crack tip fields and fracture mechanisms in single crystals can help in developing better polycrystalline alloys and manufacturing processes. To this end, the effects of loading rate, material inertia ...
