ABSTRACT
It is shown that aluminum, Al-Mg-Mn-Fe (Alustar), Al-Mg-Mn-Fe-Si-Cr (PA13), and Al-Zn-Mg-Mn-Fe-Si-Cr (Pa47) alloys are sensitive to hydrogen embrittlement in the course of the tests carried out at low strain rates in a 0.01 N NaOH solution. The stress-strain curves, time to failure, and the character of fracture surfaces of specimens tested in air and under the conditions of cathodic polarization are compared. The parameters of hydrogen transport and its entrapping by hydrogen traps are studied on the basis of the data of electrochemical measurements of hydrogen permeation and vacuum extraction. The morphology of inclusions is estimated by the method of numerical metallography and their chemical composition by the method of EDS analysis. Despite distinctions in the chemical and phase compositions of alloys, we observe the dependence of the sensitivity to hydrogen embrittlement on the parameters of hydrogen transport and its entrapping by irreversible traps and some other microstructural characteristics. Under the conditions of electrolytic hydrogenation, the PA13 alloy reveals hydrogen-enhanced plasticity.

    The main aim of this work was to study the effects of particle size, particle volume fraction, and matrix strength on the long fatigue crack growth resistance of two different grades of Al alloys (A12124-T1 and A16061-T1) reinforced with SiC particles. Basically, it was found that an increase in...

    With few exceptions, non-quadratic homogeneous polynomials have received little attention as possible candidates for yield functions. One reason might be that not every such polynomial is a convex function. In this paper we show that homogeneous polynomials can be used to develop powerful...

    The Portevin–Le Châtelier (PLC) instability is commonly observed in Al–Mg alloys and is manifested in serrated flow within the stress–strain response. We investigate the persistence of this instability with reduction in grain size by studying an ultrafine-grained (ufg)...

    The aluminum alloy 5083 in tempers such as H32 and H131 is an established light-weight armour material. While its dynamic response under high strain-rates has been investigated elsewhere, little account of the effect of material orientation has been made. In addition, little information on its...
