Paper Abstract

Whole deformation processes and slipboard propagation of aluminum alloy in tensile experiments are directly observed on whole field in real time by dynamic speckle interferometry. In plastic deformation, an inclined white band appears. It sweeps the specimen surface repeatedly in a certain sped and band width along the tensile direction. Sometimes the inclined angle of the white band transfers symmetrically. With plastic deformation increasing, the band speed decreases gradually, and the specimen cracks finally at the position where the band stops. Transient process of the white band formation is captured with a high speed CCD camera. It is revealed that the white band is a sharp slip deforming region consisted of concentrated inclined fringes. An interesting phenomenon that the strain value at a point of the specimen surface changes like a stair shape is accounted by the sweeping movement of the slipboard. The moving picture encoding technique is introduced to encode all of the sequential fringe patterns as one MPEG2 file. By watching the moving picture, the analysis of a huge volume of fringe patterns becomes easy, and subtle changes of fringe patterns can be observed clearly.
