An examination has been made of the tensile deformation behaviour of a commercial aluminium-5% magnesium alloy. Regions of uneven yielding, as exhibited in load-extension curves, have been correlated with the occurrence of markings on the specimen surface. By varying the grain size, testing temperature and strain rate, two distinct kinds of uneven yielding have been identified. One kind can be explained in terms of Cottrell atmospheres while the other is a fine grain effect and a new mechanism… CONTINUE READING
