3.22 Mechanical Behavior of Materials (MIT) 3.22 Mechanical Behavior of Materials (MIT)

Description

Here we will learn about the mechanical behavior of structures and materials, from the continuum description of properties to the atomistic and molecular mechanisms that confer those properties to all materials. We will cover elastic and plastic deformation, creep, fracture and fatigue of materials including crystalline and amorphous metals, semiconductors, ceramics, and (bio)polymers, and will focus on the design and processing of materials from the atomic to the macroscale to achieve desired mechanical behavior. We will cover special topics in mechanical behavior for material systems of your choice, with reference to current research and publications.

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (CuAlNi single crystal)

Description

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A CuAlNi single crystal (2H orthorhombic phase ) is compressed (vertical axis) at room temperature, causing activation of two sequential twinning deformations. As austenite, the crystal is cube-shaped, whereas in the martensite form it is sheared. Six different sheared martensite crystals, having well - defined prism shapes (three of which appear in this video), can be created by pressing on 3 different faces of the cube. It is essential that the loading arrangement allows lateral displacements to occur. From TLP: Microstructural Changes.

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi )

Description

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi is cooled, causing transformation to the martensitic (2H orthorhombic) phase. The process is reversed in the second half of the video, as the specimen is heated again. The rate at which transformation occurs is controlled by heat flow effects. (The shear process itself tends to take place very rapidly.) The martensitic phase is internally twinned. This is very clear within the dark-coloured phase moving in from the left-hand side in the first part of this video. From TLP: Microstructural Changes. Video was kindly donated by Vaclav Novak and Petr Sittner, Department of Functional Materials Institute of Physics of the ASCR, Prague, Czech Republic

Al, Si 12, Na 0.02 (wt%), eutectic alloy - refined microstructure

Description

This sample is a casting alloy of eutectic composition. The microstructure has been refined by modification through the addition of a small amount of sodium to the alloy composition. The large silicon plates have been altered to a more favourable fibrous form, leading to an enhancement of the mechanical properties due to the refinement of the microstructure. There is also a change to a planar interface during solidification, which minimises porosity in the casting.

TALAT Lecture 2101.01: Understanding aluminium as a material

Description

This lecture is an introduction to aluminium alloys, fabrication methods and properties. It provides information about the classification of aluminium alloys, new alloys and composites; shaping processes, processing chains and component shapes; microstructure and the interaction between microstructure and properties. It promotes understanding of the fact that the correct choice of materials demands knowledge of alloys, shaping processes and microstructure and the interaction among them. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background information about aluminium is needed as an introduction of other subject areas of aluminium application technologies. This lecture is part of the self-contained course "Aluminium in Product Development", which is treated u
