Fracture Toughness of Massively Transformed and Subsequently Heat Treated TiAl Intermetallic Compound
Sakurai, K.; Hasegawa, M.; Dlouhý, Ivo
2017 - English
The effects of massive transformation and subsequent heat treatments on the microstructure of Ti-46Al-7Nb-0.7Cr-0.2Ni-0.1Si (mol%) intermetallic compounds are studied. Massive transformation occurs at the center region of the specimen by cooling from alpha single phase state. At the surface side of the specimen, alpha phase has remained. Fine convoluted microstructure with alpha 2, gamma phases and lamellar structure has formed by heating at (alpha + gamma) two phase state after massive transformation. Colony size or grain size is about 25 micrometer. Fine fully lamellar structure is obtained after heat treatment of convoluted microstructure at alpha phase for 60 s. Fracture toughness seems to be increasing with the increase in lamellar colony size. However, some massively transformed specimens show lower toughness due to the formation of microdamage present in samples before the test.

Basic features of aggregate-matrix-interface fracture of concrete: pilot modelling
Vyhlídal, M.; Šimonová, H.; Veselý, V.; Keršner, Z.; Klusák, Jan; Malíková, Lucie
2017 - English
In this paper, the attention is paid to investigation of the importance of the Interfacial Transition Zone (ITZ) in concrete for the global fracture behaviour. A simplified cracked geometry (consisting matrix, ITZ and aggregate) is modelled by means of the finite element method with a crack terminating at the matrix-ITZ interface. Numerical studies assuming two various ITZ thicknesses and several various ITZ elastic moduli are performed. Based on the values of the opening stress ahead of the crack tip (its average value and stress range) a few conclusions are discussed. The pilot analyses dealing with the effect of ITZ on the stress distribution should contribute to better description of toughening mechanisms in silicate-based composites.

Holzer, Jakub; Pikálek, Tomáš; Buchta, Zdeněk; Lazar, Josef; Tinoco, H.A.; Chlupová, Alice; Kruml, Tomáš
2017 - English
The bulge test apparatus designed for the measurement of mechanical material properties of thin films was constructed and tested. The principle of the test is to apply pressure on a free-standing membrane, to measure the membrane shape and to analyse the results. Commercially available silicon nitride (Si3N4) thin films were used for the testing. It is shown that interferometric set-up designed and assembled for the apparatus enables precise determination of 3D shape of the whole membrane, which allows more precise determination of materials parameters compared to measurement of the height of the center of the membrane only. Fit of an analytical formula gives values of Young modulus and residual stress with very good agreement with the literature data. Moreover, FEM model of the bulged membrane was developed. The main aim of the effort is to enable measurement of plastic properties of a thin film of interest, that will be deposited on the Si3N4 membrane with known properties and bulge test will be performed on the bilayer specimen. Subsequently, the material properties of the thin film will be obtained using FEM analysis. Keywords: thin films; bulge test; mechanical properties Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Multi-parameter based stress distribution in vicinity of sharp material inclusion tip
Krepl, Ondřej; Klusák, Jan
2017 - English
General Singular Stress Concentrators (GSSCs) which exhibit singular stress concentration are often responsible for crack initiation and thus failure of the component. The GSSC of the type of bonded bi-material junction occurs in a variety of technical applications including but not limited to sharp material inclusions, silicate based composites and electronic components. The GSSC cannot be assessed by means of standard fracture mechanics. Approaches of generalized fracture mechanics require precise description of stress distribution near the stress concentration points. In order to determine the stress field accurately, the paper incorporates the multi-parameter based description.

Influence of Extension of Load Spectrum on Estimation of Residual\nFatigue Lifetime of Railway Axle
Pokorný, Pavel; Hutař, Pavel; Náhlík, Luboš
2017 - English
Railway axles are subjected to cyclic amplitude loading which can lead to fatigue failure.\nFor safe operation of railway axles a damage tolerance approach taking into account a possible\ndefect in railway axle is often required. Because of different operation regimes of trains (fast/slow\nride, ride on straight track, on curved track, over switches etc.) the load amplitude of axle is not\nconstant. The variability of load is defined by a load spectrum, which is determined experimentally\nby measuring of load in service conditions. Even though the load spectrum is measured on several\nhundreds or thousands of operation kilometres, the railway axles are in operation much longer time\n(often tens of years). Therefore, some load amplitudes higher than ones measured in the test can\noccur during a long-term axle service. The contribution presented deals with the effect of extension\nof load spectrum by rare high load amplitudes, which can occur during long-term operation, on\nresidual fatigue lifetime of railway axles. Keywords: railway axle; fatigue crack; load spectrum; overload Available at various institutes of the ASCR

3D Model of Crack Propagation in Particulate Ceramic Composite Containing Residual Stresses
Štegnerová, Kateřina; Majer, Zdeněk; Hutař, Pavel; Náhlík, Luboš
2017 - English
A crack propagation and fracture behaviour of particulate ceramic composite were investigated. Influence of 3D shape of particles on the crack propagation was studied together with influence of the presence of residual stresses, which are developed inside the composite during manufacturing process. Finite element (FE) method was used for numerical simulation of propagating crack in the composite. Basic numerical models of low-temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC) with alumina particles homogenously dispersed in the glass matrix were developed. Volume fraction of alumina phase was 20vol.%, which is typical amount for LTCC. The results show that existence of residual stresses retards the crack propagating under conditions of sub-critical crack growth (SCG). Presented results contribute to a better understanding of the role of residual stresses in particulate ceramic composites.

Lach, R.; Krolopp, T.; Hutař, Pavel; Nezbedová, E.; Grellmann, W.
2017 - English
The overall stable crack initiation and propagation behaviour of specimens cut from plastic pipes that were composed of different polyolefin materials were investigated using concepts of elastic–plastic fracture mechanics including the crack propagation kinetics. The effect of specimen shape, orientation, welding, lading rate, composition/microstructure and direction of crack propagation on the crack resistance (R) behaviour of these materials has been thereby assessed.

Dobeš, Ferdinand; Dymáček, Petr
2017 - English
Small punch test was used to determine the properties of light alloys and composites in various directions. Three different materials were studied:\n(i) magnesium alloy WE54 prepared by a powder metallurgical route with final hot extrusion,\n(ii) aluminium alloy reinforced with 20 vol. % of Saffil fibres with planar orientation, and\n(iii) Al-Al4C3 composite prepared by mechanical alloying and subjected to equal channel angularpressing as a final step.\nSmall punch tests were performed under constant force at elevated temperatures. The observed orientation dependence of creep properties is strongly material dependent. The results confirm the feasibility of the small punch test for determination of anisotropy of mechanical properties.

Konečná, R.; Nicoletto, G.; Bača, A.; Kunz, Ludvík
2017 - English
High cycle fatigue life of Ti6Al4V alloy specimens manufactured by Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) was experimentally determined. The DMLS fabrication process was characterized by a 400 W laser power and 50 micrometer layer melted thickness. Post-fabrication heat treatment consisted in stress relieving for 3 h at 720 °C in vacuum with subsequent cooling in argon atmosphere. Fatigue testing of specimens oriented in three different directions with respect to the material build direction was performed with the aim to examine the influence of the layered microstructure on the fatigue behavior. Results of measurement of surface roughness, metallographic examinations of the layered material and fractographic investigation of the fatigue fracture surfaces were employed in the discussion of fatigue crack initiation in DMLS fabricated Ti6Al4V alloy.
