Spall experiments on stainless steel 21-6-9 varying pulse lengths and longitudinal stress

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A series of uni-axial strain experiments have been undertaken to determine the spall response of 21-6-9 stainless steel under varied peak stress and tensile strain-rate loads. The material shows a positive dependency of spall strength on peak stress and strain-rate over the 7-18 GPa longitudinal stress regime. Structure is observed in the reload signal which is suggested to represent evidence for either secondary spall resistance or two concurrent fracture processes. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
