Establishing Correlations for Predicting Tensile Properties Based on the Shear Punch Test and Vickers Microhardness data
by Milot, Timothy S., M.S., University of California, Santa Barbara, 2012, 196; 1536555
Abstract (Summary)

A series of mechanical tests was performed on a matrix of pressure vessel alloys to establish correlations between shear punch tests (SPT), microhardness (Hv), and tensile data. The purpose is to estimate tensile properties from SPT and Hv data. Small specimen testing is central to characterization of irradiation-induced changes in alloys used for nuclear applications. SPT have the potential for estimating tensile yield and ultimate strengths, strain hardening and ductility data, by using TEM disks, for example. Additional insight into SPT was gained by performing finite element analysis (FEA) simulations.
