Title:Yield behavior of polycrystalline niobium
Author(s):Huffaker, D.C.; Sinclair, G.M.
Abstract:The yield behavior of niobium (columbium) has been studied under conditions of different states of stress, temperatures and strain rates, material compositions and microstructures. Using data gathered in the present investigation as well as that obtained from ten other sources, it is shown that a relationship including the above variables is given by: (_^γ ̇)G = Ae^((-[∆H*-V(τ_G-τ_iG )])/RT) While details of the frequency factor A remain unclear, it appears that it may be treated as a constant over a wide range of temperatures and strain rates. The analysis included in this paper shows that a simple parameter representation of yield behavior of niobium is feasible in terms of pertinent engineering variables.
