Summary : Classical plasticity theory of metals is independent of the hydrostatic pressure. However if the metal contains voids or pores or if the structure is composed of cells, this classical assumption is no more valid and the influence of the hydrostatic pressure must be incorporated in the constitutive description. Looking at the microlevel, metal plasticity is connected with the uniform planes of atoms organized with long-range order. Planes may slip past each other along their close-packed directions. The result is a permanent change of shape within the crystal and plastic deformation. The presence of dislocations increases the likelihood of planes slipping. Nowadays, the theory of pressure sensitive plasticity is successfully applied to many other important classes of materials (polymers, concrete, bones etc.) even if the phenomena on the micro-level are different to classical plasticity of metals. The theoretical background of this phenomenological approach based on observations on the macro-level is described in detail in this monograph and applied to a wide range of different important materials in the last part of this book.

Summary : This book will be the last one in a series of 4 books issued yearly as a deliverable of the research school established within the European Network of Excellence CMA (for Complex Metallic Alloys). It is written by reputed experts in the fields of metal physics, surface physics and chemistry, metallurgy and process engineering, combining expertise found inside as well as outside the network. The CMA network focuses on the huge group of largely unknown multinary alloys and compounds formed with crystal structures based on giant unit cells containing clusters, with many tens up to more than thousand atoms per unit cell. In these phases, for many phenomena, the physical length scales are substantially smaller than the unit-cell dimension. Hence, these materials offer unique combinations of properties, which are mutually excluded in conventional materials: metallic electric conductivity combined with low thermal conductivity, combination of good light absorption with high-temperature stability, combination of high metallic hardness with reduced wetting by liquids, electrical and thermal resistance tuneable by composition variation, excellent resistance to corrosion, reduced cold-welding and adhesion, enhanced hydrogen storage capacity and light absorption, etc. The series of books will concentrate on: development of fundamental knowledge with the aim of understanding materials phenomena, technologies associated with the production, transformation and processing of knowledge-based multifunctional materials, surface engineering, support for new materials development and new knowledge-based higher performance materials for macro-scale applications.

Summary : The intention of this book is to reveal and discuss some aspects of the metal fo- ing plasticity theory. The modern theory describes deformation of metallic bodies in cold and hot regimes under combined thermal and mechanical loadings. Th- mal and deformation fields appear in metal forming in various forms. A thermal field influences the material properties, modifies the extent of plastic zones, etc. and the deformation of metallic body induces changes in temperature distribution. The thermal effects in metal forming plasticity can be studied at two levels, - pending on whether uncoupled or coupled theories of thermo-plastic response have to be applied. A majority of metal forming processes can be satisfactorily studied within an uncoupled theory. In such an approach the temperature enters the stress-strain relation through the material constants and through the thermal dilatation. The description of thermo-plastic deformation in metal forming is c- ried out on the ground of thermodynamics.

Summary : Offering a well-balanced blend of theory and hands-on applications, this book presents a unified framework for the main dissipative phenomena in metallic materials: plasticity and damage. Based on representation theory for tensor functions and scale-bridging theorems, this framework enables the development of constitutive models that account for the influence of crystallographic structures and deformation mechanisms on the macroscopic behavior. It allows readers to develop a clear understanding of the range of applicability of any given model, as well as its capabilities and limitations, and provides procedures for parameter identification along with key concepts necessary to solve boundary value problems, making it useful to both researchers and engineering practitioners. Although the book focuses on new contributions to modeling anisotropic materials, the review of the foundations of plasticity and models for isotropic materials, completed with detailed mathematical proofs mean that it is self-consistent and accessible to graduate students in engineering mechanics and material sciences.

Summary : Nanotechnology has played a significant role in the development of useful engineering devices and in the synthesis of new classes of materials. For the reliable design of devices and for structural applications of materials with micro- or nano-sized features, nanotechnology has always called for an understanding of the mechanical properties of materials at small length scales. Thus, it becomes important to develop new experimental techniques to allow reliable mechanical testing at small scales. At the same time, the development of computational techniques is necessary to interpret the experimentally observed phenomena. Currently, microcompression testing of micropillars, which are fabricated by focused-ion beam (FIB) milling, is one of the most popular experimental methods for measuring the mechanical properties at the micrometer scale. Also, dislocation dynamics codes have been extensively developed to study the local evolution of dislocation structures. Therefore, we conducted both experimental and theoretical studies that shed new light on the factors that control the strength and plasticity of crystalline materials at the sub-micrometer scale. In the experimental work, we produced gold nanopillars by focused-ion beam milling, and conducted microcompression tests to obtain the stress-strain curves. Firstly, the size effects on the strength of gold nanopillars were studied, and "Smaller is Stronger" was observed. Secondly, we tried to change the dislocation densities to control the strength of gold nanopillars by prestraining and annealing. The results showed that prestraining dramatically reduces the flow strength of nanopillars while annealing restores the strength to the pristine levels. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed that the high dislocation density (~1015 m-2) of prestrained nanopillars significantly decreased after heavy plastic deformation. In order to interpret this TEM observation, potential dislocation source structures were geometrically analyzed. We found that the insertion of jogged dislocations before relaxation or enabling cross-slip during plastic flow are prerequisites for the formation of potentially strong natural pinning points and single arm dislocation sources. At the sub-micron scale, these conditions are most likely absent, and we argue that mobile dislocation starvation would occur naturally in the course of plastic flow. Two more outstanding issues have also been studied in this dissertation. The first involves the effects of FIB milling on the mechanical properties. Since micropillars are made by FIB milling, the damage layer at the free surface is always formed and would be expected to affect the mechanical properties at a sub-micron scale. Thus, pristine gold microparticles were produced by a solid-state dewetting technique, and the effects of FIB milling on both pristine and prestrained microparticles were examined via microcompression testing. These experiments revealed that FIB milling significantly reduces the strength of pristine microparticles, but does not alter that of prestrained microparticles. Thus, we confirmed that if there are pre-existing mobile-dislocations present in the crystal, FIB milling does not affect the mechanical properties. The second issue is the scaling law commonly used to describe the strength of micropillars as a function of sample size. For the scaling law, the power-law approximation has been widely used without understanding fundamental physics in it. Thus, we tried to analyze the power-law approximation in a quantitative manner with the well-known single arm source model. Material parameters, such as the friction stress, the anisotropic shear modulus, the magnitude of Burgers vector and the dislocation density, were explored to understand their effects on the scaling behavior. Considering these effects allows one to rationalize the observed material-dependent power-law exponents quantitatively. In another part of the dissertation, a computational study of dislocation dynamics in a free-standing thin film is described. We improved the ParaDiS (Parallel Dislocation Simulator) code, which was originally developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, to deal with the free surface of a free-standing thin film. The spectral method was implemented to calculate the image stress field in a thin film. The faster convergence in the image stress calculation were obtained by employing Yoffe's image stress, which removes the singularity of the traction at the intersecting point between a threading dislocation and free surface. Using this newly developed code, we studied the stability of dislocation junctions and jogs, which are the potential dislocation sources, in a free standing thin film of a face-centered-cubic metal and discussed the creation of a dislocation source in a thin film. In summary, we have performed both microcompression tests and dislocation dynamics simulations to understand the dislocation mechanisms at the sub-micron scale and the related mechanical properties of metals. We believe that these experimental and computational studies have contributed to the enhancement of our fundamental knowledge of the plasticity of metals at the sub-micron scale.

Summary : This book serves both as a textbook and a scientific work. As a textbook, the work gives a clear, thorough and systematic presentation of the fundamental postulates, theorems and principles and their applications of the classical mathematical theories of plasticity and creep. In addition to the mathematical theories, the physical theory of plasticity, the book presents the Budiansky concept of slip and its modification by M. Leonov. Special attention is given to the analysis of the advantages and shortcomings of the classical theories. In its main part, the book presents the synthetic theory of irreversible deformations, which is based on the mathematical Sanders flow plasticity theory and the physical theory, the Budiansky concept of slip. The main peculiarity of the synthetic theory is that the formulae for both plastic and creep deformation, as well their interrelations, can be derived from the single constitutive equation. Furthermore, the synthetic theory, as physical one, can take into account the real processes that take place in solids at irreversible deformation. This widens considerably the potential of the synthetic theory. In the framework of the synthetic theory such problems as creep delay, the Hazen-Kelly effect, the deformation at the break of the load trajectory, the influence of the rate of loading on the stress-strain diagram, creep at the changes of load, creep at unloading and reversed creep, have been analytically described. In the last chapter, the book shows the solution of some contemporary problems of plasticity and creep: Creep deformation at cyclic abrupt changes of temperature, The influence of irradiation on the plastic and creep deformation, Peculiarities of deformation at the phase transformation of some metals.

Summary : In several industrial fields (such as automotive, steelmaking, aerospace, and fire protection systems) metals need to withstand a combination of cyclic loadings and high temperatures. In this condition, they usually exhibit an amount—more or less pronounced—of plastic deformation, often accompanied by creep or stress-relaxation phenomena. Plastic deformation under the action of cyclic loadings may cause fatigue cracks to appear, eventually leading to failures after a few cycles. In estimating the material strength under such loading conditions, the high-temperature material behavior needs to be considered against cyclic loading and creep, the experimental strength to isothermal/non-isothermal cyclic loadings and, not least of all, the choice and experimental calibration of numerical material models and the selection of the most comprehensive design approach. This book is a series of recent scientific contributions addressing several topics in the field of experimental characterization and physical-based modeling of material behavior and design methods against high-temperature loadings, with emphasis on the correlation between microstructure and strength. Several material types are considered, from stainless steel, aluminum alloys, Ni-based superalloys, spheroidal graphite iron, and copper alloys. The quality of scientific contributions in this book can assist scholars and scientists with their research in the field of metal plasticity, creep, and low-cycle fatigue.
