The strain-hardening exponent (n-value) was influenced by prestraining levels and the strain path.
Once the electric current was removed from the specimen, the flow stress of the selected magnesium alloy rapidly increased again and showed a strain-hardening behavior until fracture.
Additionally, the strain-hardening tendency of the LCB-PP 3H4 further increases the resistance.
Recent capabilities of Polyflow include modeling anisotropic multilayer composites and calculating the non-linear strain-hardening behavior of blow-molded and thermoformed plastics.
Deformation properties of dual-phase steels (tensibility, uniform elongation UE, strain-hardening exponent) depend on the volume fraction of martensite--Fig.
Instrumented indentation has been used to measure the mechanical properties of materials [2-7], such as hardness H, elastic modulus E, strain-hardening exponent n, and yield strength [[delta].
F]), strength coefficient (H) and strain-hardening exponent (n) of the Ramberg-Osgood equation (Equation 1): (1)
His topics include historical aspects of conventional fiber-reinforced concrete systems, fiber pullout and interfacial characterization, a flexual model for strain-softening and strain-hardening composites, fiber-reinforced aerated concrete, and retrofitting reinforced concrete beam-column joints using textile cement composites.
Due to the formation of flat steady-state cracks in ECC, crack widths do not grow and load capacity does not fall (and rises in most cases) as many cracks form, resulting in a strain-hardening behavior shown in Figure 3.
Nylon fibers in cementitious composites will improve strain-hardening property, tension strength, elastic modulus, and fracture parameter of J-integral [4,8,11,12].
