Abstract:

An investigation was made of the dependence of tensile strength on prior plastic deformation. The material for the investigation was taken from the following alloys silicon ferrite with an Si content of approximately 1 and 2 molybdenum ferrite with a content of about 1 Mo and brand 30KhGSA steel. Plastic deformation accomplished by uniaxial static tension caused a significant increase in tensile strength. The intensity of this increase depended on the composition of the alloy and its initial structure. The accumulation of systematic data on the dependence of tensile strength on prior plastic deformation offers much interest, because such data can be used for more accurate evaluation of the tendency of alloys toward brittle fracture.
