Cyclic stress–strain behavior of conventional grain and ultrafine grain nickel under biaxial straining
(Elsevier http://www.linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S135964620800064X, 2008)
Results are presented on the effects of biaxial straining on the cyclic stress–strain response of ultrafine grain nickel (grain size 260 nm) and conventional grain nickel (grain size 50 lm) over a range of effective ...
Experimental assessment of locomotive brake blocks-case studies of Botswana Railways
(University of Botswana, www.ub.bw, 2011)
The brake blocks employed on Botswana Railways locomotives have been found to fail frequently resulting in increased maintenance and operational costs. The paper presents the metallurgical and mechanical properties of two ...
Cyclic plasticity of polycrystalline nickel under axial–torsional loading
(Elsevier, www.elsevier.com, 2010)
The axial–torsional cyclic deformation behavior of polycrystalline nickel was investigated by performing fully reversed plastic strain amplitude controlled fatigue experiments at effective plastic strain amplitudes ranging ...
