Micro-scale mechanics of the surface-nanocrystalline Al-alloy material
- 41 Downloads
Based on the microscopic observations and measurements, the mechanical behavior of the surface-nanocrystallized Al-alloy material at microscale is investigated experimentally and theoretically. In the experimental research, the compressive stress-strain curves and the hardness depth curves are measured. In the theoretical simulation, based on the material microstructure characteristics and the experimental features of the compression and indentation, the microstructure cell models are developed and the strain gradient plasticity theory is adopted. The material compressive stress-strain curves and the hardness depth curves are predicted and simulated. Through comparison of the experimental results with the simulation results, the material and model parameters are determined.
