UKAEA-CCFE-PR(21)57

Small punch testing was carried out on Copper-Chromium-Zirconium alloy subjected to two heat treatment conditions –both quenched and one subjected to subsequent aging. The variation in the load displacement characteristics associated with the testing was attributed to differences in plastic and damage properties evolved as a consequence of these …

Determining tensile properties from small punch test is being pursued actively in the nuclear industry due to the limited volume of material such tests use compared with standard tests which can be critical when considering active or development samples. One of the crucial challenges in harnessing the full potential of this technique is formulat…

Crystal plasticity finite element (CPFE) modelling is an effective tool from which detailed information on the meso-scale behaviour of crystalline metallic systems can be extracted and used, not only to enhance the understanding of material behaviour under different loading conditions, but also to improve the structural integrity assessment of e…
