Abstract

The evolution of shock compressive pulses and dynamic tensile (spall) strength of pristine and pre-strained (0.6% and 5.4% compression) samples of pure [100]-oriented molybdenum single crystals were studied in a series of planar impact tests accompanied by continuous monitoring of the free surface velocity of the samples by an optic velocimeter. The impact loading of Mo samples of different thicknesses was produced by copper impactors accelerated in the smooth bore gun up to a velocity of about 350 m/s. Analyzing the recorded waveforms showed that pre-straining results in a substantial decrease of the molybdenum Hugoniot elastic limit while the dynamic tensile (spall) strength increases with pre-straining. The spall fracture of all tested (and spalled) samples was found to be brittle and characterized by a weak dependence of spall strength on the tensile strain rate. The obtained results are discussed in the terms of generally accepted theories of elastic precursor decay in ductile and spall fracture in brittle solids.
