1 Assignment #6 Solutions ME264 Materials Science for Mechanical Engineering Spring 2009 Due Date: 08 April 2009 (4 pts) 1. (1pt) Explain what is meant by the ideal strength of a material. Solution: See section 9.2 from the textbook. 2. (2pts) (a) A polycrystalline aluminum allot contains a dispersion of hard particles of diameter 10 -8 m and average center-to-center spacing of 6 x 10 -8 m measured in the slip planes. Estimate their contribution to the tensile yield strength, σ y , of the alloy. (b) The alloy is used for the compressor blades of a small turbine. Adiabatic heating raises the blade temperature to 150 o C, and causes the particles to coarsen slowly. After 1000 hours they have grown to a diameter of 3 x 10 -8 m and are spaced 18 x 10 -8 m apart. Estimate the drop in yield strength. (The shear modulus of aluminum is 26 GN m

The yield stress of an otherwise identical sample with a grain size of 4 μ m was 120 MN m-2 . Why did the yield stress increase in this way? What is the value of β in equation (10.5) for the brass?
