THE STRAIN RATE DEPENDENCE OF THREE HIGH STRENGTH NAVAL ALLOYS

The properties of three alloys were studied: a Type HY-80 steel, a Type HY-130 steel, and a titanium alloy: Ti-6211. (6Al 1Nb 0.8Mo 1Ta). These materials were subjected to a wide range of uniaxial tensile rates of straining at room temperature: static tests, rapid loading tests, and dynamic tests. The results of these tests are replotted to demonstrate the dependence of stress as a function of rate of straining. It is concluded that these materials demonstrate a monotonic increase in stress as a function of strain rate. (Modified author abstract)
