This booklet is the second one quantity within the instruction manual of floor technological know-how sequence and offers with points of the digital constitution of surfaces as investigated via the experimental and theoretical tools of physics. the significance of figuring out floor phenomena stems from the truth that for plenty of actual and chemical phenomena, the outside performs a key function: in digital, magnetic, and optical units, in heterogenous catalysis, in epitaxial development, and the appliance of protecting coatings, for instance. hence a greater figuring out and, finally, a predictive description of floor and interface houses is essential for the development of recent expertise. An research of floor digital constitution is additionally valuable to our realizing of all elements of surfaces from a basic standpoint. The chapters offered the following evaluation the ambitions completed within the box and map out the demanding situations forward, either in test and theory.

Example text

A measure of strain often used in conjunction with the true stress takes the increment of strain to be the incremental increase in displacement dL divided by the current length L: d t = dL → l L t = l0 L 1 dL = ln L L0 (4) This is called the “true” or “logarithmic” strain. During yield and the plastic-flow regime following yield, the material flows with negligible change in volume; increases in length are offset by decreases in cross-sectional area. Prior to necking, when the strain is still uniform along the specimen length, this volume constraint can be written: dV = 0 → AL = A0 L0 → L A = L0 A0 (5) The ratio L/L0 is the extension ratio, denoted as λ.

Replot the the results of the previous problem using log-log axes as in Fig. 9 to determine the parameters A and n in Eqn. 8 for aluminum. 5. Using Eqn. 4. Does the material neck? Explain why the curve is or is not valid at strains beyond necking. 6. 221. 7. Use a Consid`ere construction (plot σt vs. λ, as in Fig. 10 ) to verify the result of the previous problem. 8. Elastomers (rubber) have stress-strain relations of the form σe = E 1 λ− 2 , 3 λ where E is the initial modulus. Use the Consid`ere construction to show whether this material will neck, or draw.

Strain energy The area under the σe − e curve up to a given value of strain is the total mechanical energy per unit volume consumed by the material in straining it to that value. This is easily shown as follows: U∗ = 1 V L P dL = 0 P dL = A0 L0 0 σd (9) In the absence of molecular slip and other mechanisms for energy dissipation, this mechanical energy is stored reversibly within the material as strain energy. When the stresses are low enough that the material remains in the elastic range, the strain energy is just the triangular area in Fig.
