Hot dwell-fatigue behaviour of additively manufactured AlSi10Mg alloy: Relaxation, cyclic softening and fracture mechanisms
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
This paper presents the results of high temperature strain-range controlled low cycle fatigue tests of a laser powder bead fused AlSi10Mg alloy. Following stress relief (2hrs at 300 ℃), two cyclic loading waveforms (standard triangular and dwell-type trapezoidal waveforms) and three temperatures (100 ℃, 250 ℃ and 400 ℃) were applied to investigate both the mechanical response and the related microstructural changes of this additively manufactured (AM) aluminium alloy. The bulk mechanical responses were found to exhibit a continuous cyclic softening, decreasing stress relaxation and decreased energy dissipated per cycle. The stress relaxation is strongly affected by the test temperature rising to almost complete relaxation at 400 ℃. At lower temperatures (100 ℃ and 250 ℃), the higher the temperature the more subgrains are developed during cyclic loading. Up to 250 ℃, the subgrain size increases with temperature and laser powder bead fused defects preferentially act as the fatigue crack initiation sites. While at 400 ℃, coarse Si particles precipitate during cyclic deformation and a high density of microvoids are nucleated from these coarse Si precipitates, which grow and link up to cause failure, resulting in a dimple dominated ductile fracture.
