Laboratory set-ups for studying the rheology of metallic alloys

INPG has designed and performed shear experiments using the tensile rheometer with Al-Cu and 5083 Aluminium alloys at various strain rates and various solid fractions. Tests have also been carried out non-isothermally during solidification.

Moreover, INPG has designed a drained oedometric compression apparatus, and tested it initially with Sn-Pb alloys. Various compression rates and temperatures have been investigated. The apparatus has been modified to allow tests to be carried out with Al alloys. These tests have been performed with Al-Cu alloys.

In addition, a tensile test apparatus that allows straining the alloy during solidification has been developed.
