In-Situ X-ray LAMinography with Bi-axial Loads for the Multiscale Investigation of DAmage Formation in Materials for Transportation – LAMBDA

Submission summary

In the pursuit of lighter materials and optimized thin-walled components for transportation, knowledge about the characteristic ductile damage mechanisms in metal sheets is key.As the study of damage in materials has, up to now, been focussed on proportional loading, the strain-damage interaction is not understood for the highly application-relevant bi-axial loading with load path changes. Thus, our proposal aims at three-dimensional (3D) imaging of the microstructure inside flat sheet specimens evolving during material testing under such loads. For this, we extend the capability of in situ synchrotron laminography to overcome inherent insufficiency of other 3D techniques for such kind of samples. It shall be developed into a unique multiscale approach from a few hundred micrometres down to nanometre scale to determine the ductile damage nucleation and growth kinetics. Such hierarchical 3D data will serve as valuable input for microscopic simulations and the formulation and validation of continuum damage models suited to predict engineering-relevant mechanical properties.
