High-temperature dynamic deformation of aluminum alloys using SHPB



This paper investigates the dynamic deformation behavior of two aluminum alloys, 2024-T4 and 6061-T6, using a modified split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) with a pulse shaper technique at both elevated and room temperatures. An experimental strategy is proposed, and the dynamic deformation behaviors of two alloys are evaluated with the modified high-temperature SHPB apparatus. The experiments were carried out under varying strain rates and temperatures. The reflected waves modulated by the pulse shaper, the flow stress-strain relationships, the strain rates, the front- and back-ends stresses during the dynamic deformation period were measured at varying high temperatures. Experimentally obtained data were used to evaluate the parameters in the material constitutive equation, such as the Johnson-Cook (JC) constitutive model.
