Dependence of the yield stresses of certain materials on loading rate

  • 24 Accesses


The dependence of the dynamic yield stresses of certain metals and alloys on loading rate has been investigated at temperatures of +20 and −196°C. In the experiments the loading rate remained constant up to the appearance of plastic strains, i.e.,\(\sigma (t) = \mathop \sigma \limits^ \bullet t\), where\(\mathop \sigma \limits^ \bullet = {\text{const}}\). The yield stresses of the materials and the time to the appearance of plastic strains were determined from the oscillograms representing the strain and load as functions of time.
