Abstract

The superplastic deformation and cavitation damage characteristics of a modified aluminum alloy are investigated at a temperature range from 500 to 550°C. The baseline alloy is AA5083. Nominally this alloy contains about 4.5% Mg, 0.8% Mn, 0.2% Cr, 0.037% Si, 0.08% Fe and 0.025% Ti by weight. The experimental program consists of uniaxial tension tests and digital image analysis for measuring cavitation. The experiments reveal that evolution of damage is due to both nucleation and growth of voids. A viscoplastic model for describing deformation and damage in this alloy is developed based on a continuum mechanics framework. The model includes the effect of strain hardening, strain rate sensitivity, dynamic and static recovery, and nucleation and growth of voids. The model predictions compare well with the experimental results.
