An Image-Based Inertial Impact (IBII) test for tungsten carbide cermets

An Image-Based Inertial Impact (IBII) test for tungsten carbide cermets
Testing tungsten carbide cermets at high strain rates is difficult due to their high stiffness and brittle failure mode. Therefore, the aim of this study is to apply the image-based inertial impact (IBII) test methodology to analyse the high strain rate properties of tungsten carbide cermets. The IBII test uses an edge on impact test configuration with a narrow stress pulse. The narrow input pulse travels through the specimen in compression and reflects in tension causing failure. Full-field measurements of acceleration and strain are then coupled with the virtual fields method to identify the stiffness components and tensile strength of a test sample at high strain rates. Image deformation simulations were used to select optimal test processing parameters and predict the associated experimental errors. The elastic modulus and tensile strength of the tested tungsten carbide cermet samples were successfully identified using the IBII test at strain rates on the order of 1000/s. No significant strain rate dependence was detected for either the stiffness or tensile strength.

Abstract

Testing tungsten carbide cermets at high strain rates is difficult due to their high stiffness and brittle failure mode. Therefore, the aim of this study is to apply the image-based inertial impact (IBII) test methodology to analyse the high strain rate properties of tungsten carbide cermets. The IBII test uses an edge on impact test configuration with a narrow stress pulse. The narrow input pulse travels through the specimen in compression and reflects in tension causing failure. Full-field measurements of acceleration and strain are then coupled with the virtual fields method to identify the stiffness components and tensile strength of a test sample at high strain rates. Image deformation simulations were used to select optimal test processing parameters and predict the associated experimental errors. The elastic modulus and tensile strength of the tested tungsten carbide cermet samples were successfully identified using the IBII test at strain rates on the order of 1000/s. No significant strain rate dependence was detected for either the stiffness or tensile strength.
