Effect of stress ratio on the rate of growth of fatigue cracks in 1100 Al-alloy

Bilir, Ömer.G.
Harun, Metin
Axial load fatigue crack propagation tests were conducted on notched sheet specimens made of 1100 aluminum alloy. These tests were made at stress ratios (ratio of the minimum stress to the maximum stress) ranging from −0.5 to 0.5 in order to study the effects of stress ratio on fatigue crack growth. Experimental fatigue crack propagation data were analysed using Paris-Erdoǧan stress intensity analysis. The data from the tests at different stress ratios showed that two regions, namely, region I and region II were present.

Crack growth tests at 150-degrees-C under constant load conditions were performed on compact tension specimens of 7050-T73651 aluminium alloy. The d.c. potential drop method was employed to monitor crack lengths throughout the tests. Fracture mechanics parameters such as the stress intensity factor (K) and energy-rate line integral (C*) were used to establish correlation with the crack propagation rates. As a result of experiments it was found that crack growth rates (da/dt) versus K, over discrete ranges o...

The effect of rare-earth (Sm) microalloying on the thermal stability and phase selection along with the effect of nanocrystallization on the mechanical properties of amorphous melt-spun ribbons of Zr50Cu40Al10, Zr49Cu39.2Al9.8Sm2 and Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 alloys were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vickers and nanoindentation hardness tests and micropillar compression analysis. XRD and TEM analyses showed that all samp...
Effect of microstructural modification on damage tolerance of 34CrMo4 shaft steel
Ozcan, Burak; Gurer, Goksu; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Wiley, 2020-06-01)
Overall damage tolerances of the heat-treated 34CrMo4 steels having ferritic-pearlitic, bainitic, and tempered-martensitic microstructures were evaluated based on their threshold stress intensity factor prior to small crack propagation, fatigue strength, and fracture toughness under static loading. Kitagawa-Takahashi diagrams were constructed to determine the limiting size of small crack propagation. The micromechanical effects of carbide morphology and phase distribution on quasi-static and dynamic mechani...

In this study, effects of simultaneous Mo and W substitution for Nb additions on the stability and magnetic properties of Fe-Co-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloys fabricated by centrifugal casting are investigated. The saturation magnetization (J(s)) and coercivity (H(c)) for the as-cast Fe(36)CO(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)X(4) (X = Nb or Mo(0.5)W(0.5)) BMG alloys and melt-spun Fe(36)Co(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)Mo(2)W(2) were in the range of 1.02-1.57T and 11.13-1685 A/m, respectively. The Fe(36)Co(36)B(19.2)Si(4.8)X(4) ...
Effect of Microstructure on the Mechanical Behavior of Reactive Magnetron Sputtered Al2O3/TiO2 Multilayer Ceramics
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Japan Institute of Metals, 2008-11-01)
Mechanical characteristics of reactive magnetron sputtered Al2O3-TiO2 multilayer ceramics were studied. Tailored mechanical properties such as moderately high hardness and reasonable toughness were achieved through varying sputtering process parameters resulting in microstructural control at nano-scale. Interchanging Al2O3 and TiO2 layers with a single layer thickness of similar to 65-70 nm were deposited on single crystal alumina (sapphire) substrates to form the multilayer structure composed of 10 layers....
