Mechanical behaviour of copper at high strain rates
thesisposted on 19.11.2012 by A.G. Walker
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The primary objectives of this research were to determine the macroscopic properties of polycrystalline OFHC copper for various grain sizes over a wide range of strain rates and temperatures, and to relate the properties to the fundamental microscopic mechanisms which control the deformation characteristics of the material....
