The following experiments were carried out with two principal objects in view: (1) to investigate the deformation of those metals, particularly iron and steel, in which the stress-strain curve does not immediately rise at the onset of plastic distortion; (2) to determine the effect of rate of deformation on the yield and subsequent stress-strain curve. It is impossible to give an adequate summary of the literature which deals with this subject, but a bibliography is included in an appendix and…

The Deformation and Ageing of Mild Steel

Mild steel deforms by a series of bands of plastic deformation called Luders bands. In heavy tensile specimen a complexs series of bands may arise, but in thin wire specimens it is shown that only

Note on the shape of the load-elongation curve for mild steel in the region of the yield point

The authors give an analysis of the “spike” in the loading range of the load-strain curve for mild steel with reference to the interaction between the localized Lüders-line plastic deformation and

The Flow of Metals under Various Stress Conditions

The phenomena associated with the permanent deformations of the metals have attracted the attention of investigators during the last 100 to 150 years, and have inspired mathematically-minded

Dependence of the yield stresses of certain materials on loading rate

AbstractThe dependence of the dynamic yield stresses of certain metals and alloys on loading rate has been investigated at temperatures of +20 and −196°C. In the experiments the loading rate remained

High-Strain-Rate Investigations, with Particular Reference to Stress/Strain Characteristics

AbstractCottrell has suggested that a given value of strain rate may be termed ‘high’ or ‘low’ in relation to some molecular process of deformation such as the vibration of an atom or a molecule in a

Challenges to Accurate Evaluation of Bulk Hardness from Nanoindentation Testing at Low Indent Depths

Estimations of bulk hardness from nanoindentation data are frequently subject to considerable uncertainties, due to indentation size effects, potential pileup effects, and potential influence of

The yield point and initial stages of plastic strain in mild steel subjected to uniform and non-uniform stress distributions

The paper describes an investigation carried out to determine for three samples of mild steel, (1) the relation between the stress at the yield point in simple tension and in the non-uniform
