EXPERIMENT PERFORMED ON: September 21st

Objective

The objective of this experiment was to find out the yield point of the Al-6061 cylindrical

bar when subjected to combined torsional and uniaxial tensile loading, and to compare the

results obtained with those obtained for pure torsion and pure uniaxial loading.

Theory

Materials undergo deformation when subjected to stresses. When subjected to uniaxial

tensile stress, materials undergo elongation in the direction of the application of stress.

Depending on the relation between stress and strain, the behaviour of the material can be

classified into elastic or plastic. A material undergoing elastic deformation regains its

original size and shape when stress is removed. Elastic deformation in most metals obeys

Hookes Law, according to which there is a linear relationship between stress and strain.

Stress can be either stated as engineering stress or true stress.

The above figure shows typical relation between engineering stress & engineering strain

The engineering stress and strain in a tensile test are defined relative to the original area

and length of the test specimen. It is defined as:-

=

where:

F Tensile Force

A Area of Cross Section of the specimen before testing.

Engineering Strain is defined as:-

where:

Li Original Length of the specimen (distance between the gage points).

The elastic and the plastic regions can be easily seen from Figure 1. In the elastic region, the

material obeys Hookes Law:-

=

Here E is the modulus of Elasticity of the material.

As stress increases, some point in the linear relationship is finally reached at which the

material begins to yield. This yield point Y of the material can be identified in the figure by

the change in slope at the end of the linear region. Because the start of yielding is usually

difficult to see in a plot of test data (it does not usually occur as an abrupt change in

slope),Y is typically defined as the stress at which a strain offset of 0.2% from the straight

line has occurred. The yield point marks the transition to the plastic region and the start of

plastic deformation of the material. The relationship between stress and strain is no longer

guided by Hookes law.

To the right of the tensile strength on the stressstrain curve, the load begins to decline, and

the test specimen typically begins a process of localized elongation known as necking.

Instead of continuing to strain uniformly throughout its length, straining becomes

concentrated in one small section of the specimen. The area of that section narrows down

(necks) significantly until failure occurs. The stress calculated immediately before failure is

known as the fracture stress. The amount of strain that the material can endure before

failure is called ductility.

As necking starts, the plastic deformation gets localized only to a small area. Decrease in

area implies increase in localized stress It means is that the metal is becoming stronger as

strain increases. This is the property called strain hardening .Necking in a tensile test and

metal-forming operations that stretch the work part is related to strain hardening. As the

test specimen is elongated during the initial part of the test (before necking begins),

uniform straining occurs throughout the length because if any element in the specimen

becomes strained more than the surrounding metal, its strength increases because of work

hardening, thus making it more resistant to additional strain until the surrounding metal

has been strained an equal amount. Finally, the strain becomes so large that uniform

straining cannot be sustained. A weak point in the length develops (because of build-up of

dislocations at grain boundaries, impurities in the metal, or other factors), and necking is

initiated, leading to failure.

A cylindrical shaft subjected to pure torsion will experience shear stress only which

increases linearly with distance from the axis. The torque applied can be related to the rate

of twist, and these relations can be used to find out the Shear Modulus of Rigidity.

T= GJ

J=

Twist, = * L

Thus, the slope of T vs will be (G*J/L). From this we get: =

The expression for yield strength is different for different loading conditions. According to

the von Mises criterion, the second invariant of the deviatoric stress tensor is equal to the

octahedral yield strength. Three cases were tested in this experiment. The yield stress for

these cases is:-

(a)

(b)

(c)

Mohrs circle can be used to obtain the principal stresses for all cases.

Equipment

The equipment used in this experiment were: Axial Torsion Test Machine.

Extensometer.

Vernier Callipers.

Al-6061 Specimen.

1. The dimensions of the specimen are measured using Vernier Callipers. The Axial

Torsion Test Machine is switched on and the test specimen is held between the grips.

2. The ramp rate for displacement and twist angle are set and the machine is turned

on. The ramp rate is kept low.

3. Combined loading test is conducted at a ramp rate at which the yielding due to

torque and tension roughly occurs at the same time.

5. Loading is continued until the specimen failure is observed.

6. The load vs. displacement data and the angle vs. torque data are recorded.

7. This recorded data is used to plot stress vs strain curve.

8. Failure analysis of the failed specimen is performed. Analysis of the material

behaviour is done from the stress-strain plot.

9. The same procedure is repeated for the remaining two cases.

Specimen information:- Gage Length 22.86 cm (9 in) , Diameter 12 mm for last two

RVDT (deg)

In order to estimate G, the elastic region is considered

The slope of the best-fit line comes out to be 1.7041 N-m/degree. Also, the moment of

inertia for the shaft is 2.034 * 10^(-9) m^4. Using these values and substituting in the

formula mentioned in the theory, the Modulus of Rigidity comes out to be

G = 23.163 GPa

Also, the shear stress at which yielding takes place was calculated to be

xy = 93.589 MPa

From this, the yield stress can be calculated as (using equation b)

Also,

1) Combined Loading

The modulus of rigidity and the shear modulus are calculated in the same way as above.

The time at which yielding occurs due to tension is noted down and the moment and

deflection at corresponding time is noted down from the torsion data. Shear stress and axial

stress is calculated at this point. The values of the stress obtained are substituted in equation

(c) to get the yield strength of the material.

Thus,

Modulus of Elasticity, E = 13.21 GPa

Shear Modulus, G = 22.375 GPa

Yield Strength, yield = 156.58 MPa.

Principal Stresses:-

1 = 154 MPa

&

2 = -4.36 MPa

Discussion:

The stiffness calculated from the data measured for combined loading is different

from the one calculated using the data for uniaxial tension. While the value is 70GPa

for tension, its 130GPa for combined loading. The difference between these values is

much higher than expected.

The shear modulus calculated from torsion test is very close to what was calculated from

the data obtained for combined loading. Its 22.375 GPa for the latter while its 23.163 GPa

for the former.

The yield point is different for all the three cases. The magnitudes for combined loading and

pure torsion are very close (156 & 161 MPa respectively), while the value is significantly

different for the uniaxial tension test.

The elastic region of the stress strain plot is linear in all cases. This implies that material

under consideration obeys Hookes law in this region, and is isotropic. This is also expected

because the material tested is made of Aluminium, a metal.

Serration is observed in the plastic deformation region. This happens because of dynamic

ageing of the material. The motion of dislocations is a discontinuous process. When

dislocation meets they are temporary arrested for a certain time. During this time solutes

(such as interstitial particles) diffuse around the dislocations further strengthening the

obstacles held on the dislocations. Eventually these dislocations will overcome these

obstacles with sufficient stress and will quickly move to the next obstacle where they are

stopped and the process can repeat again. Since the material used is an alloy of Aluminium,

the interstitial diffusion is much more profound, leading to serrations in the plastic

deformation region.

The material should yield according to the von Mises criterion. Since the material is

isotropic, and is ductile, the properties should change smoothly. Unlike the Tresca failure

criterion, which proposes that yield occurs abruptly, von Mises criterion which is based on

deformation energy, and involves averaging over all directions, is more applicable for this

material. Thus, the yielding should occur according to the von Mises criterion.

The yield point will change beyond a significant value of strain rate. If the strain rate is very

high, the deformation occurs in accordance with the laws of dynamic loading. The yield

stress in this case will be different from the one which is calculated for low strain rates.

The yield point may change when the experiment is conducted on a different day, if the

temperature is different.

The material did not fail at the center. There may be cracks present already in the material

or produced during the course of the experiment. Because of this, necking and fracture may

occur at a location away from the center.
