MAUD Rietveld Refinement Software for Neutron Diffraction Texture Studies of Single and Dual-Phase Materials

August 19, 2021
Alec Saville, Emily Mitchell, Sven Vogel, Adam Abel Creuziger, Jake Benzing, Kester Clarke, Jonah Klemm-Toole, Amy Clarke
This work presents a detailed instructional demonstration using the Rietveld refinement software MAUD for evaluating the crystallographic texture of single- and dual-phase materials, as applied to High-Pressure-Preferred-Orientation (HIPPO) neutron

Texture Evolution as a Function of Scan Strategy and Build Height in Electron Beam Melted Ti-6Al-4V

June 12, 2021
Alec Saville, Sven Vogel, Adam Abel Creuziger, Jake Benzing, Adam Pilchak, Lee Semiatin, Peeyush Nandwana, Kester Clarke, Jonah Klemm-Toole, Amy Clarke
Metal additive manufacturing (AM) enables customizable, on-demand parts, allowing for new designs and improved engineering performance. Unfortunately, the ability to control AM metal alloy microstructures is still lacking, especially when considering

Characteristics and Mechanisms of Hydrogen-Induced Quasi-Cleavage Fracture of Lath Martensitic Steel

January 10, 2021
Lawrence Cho, Peter E. Bradley, Damian S. Lauria, May L. Martin, Matthew J. Connolly, Jake Benzing, Eun Jung Seo, Kip O. Findley, John G. Speer, Andrew J. Slifka
This study presents an in-depth characterization of the microstructures, crystallographic orientations, and dislocation characteristics beneath the hydrogen-induced quasi-cleavage features of an as-quenched, lath martensitic (') 22MnB5 steel. The fracture

Shoulder fillet effects in strength distributions of MEMS components

November 6, 2020
Frank W. DelRio, Brad L. Boyce, Jake T. Benzing, Lawrence H. Friedman, Robert F. Cook
The failure forces and fracture strengths of polysilicon MEMS components in the form of stepped tensile bars with shoulder fillets were measured using a sequential failure chain methodology. Approximately 150 specimens for each of four fillet geometries

Intercritical annealing to achieve a positive strain rate sensitivity of mechanical properties and suppression of plastic instabilities in multi-phase medium-Mn steels

October 29, 2020
Jake Benzing, William E. Luecke, Steven Mates, Dirk Ponge, Dierk Raabe, James Wittig
The present work investigates the room temperature tensile properties of a cold-rolled Fe-12Mn- 3Al-0.05C (% by mass) steel designed to have a multi-phase microstructure and positive strain rate sensitivities. An increase in intercritical annealing time

Effects of laser-energy density and build orientation on the defect structure, microstructure and tensile properties of Inconel 718 parts manufactured with laser powder bed fusion

June 30, 2020
Dillon Watring, Jake Benzing, Nik Hrabe, Ashley Spear
This study investigates the processing-structure-property relationships of Inconel 718 manufactured by laser powder bed fusion. Three di erent build conditions were selected for the Inconel 718 specimens: 0 build orientation and 38 J/mm3, 0 build

Development and Validation of Small Punch Testing at NIST

April 16, 2020
Enrico Lucon, Jake T. Benzing, Nikolas W. Hrabe
Small Punch (SP) testing is a methodology that uses tiny disks (generally 8 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm thick) to estimate mechanical properties of metallic materials, such as tensile properties, fracture toughness, and ductile-to-brittle transition

Multiple Changepoint Analysis of Noisy Nonlinear Data with an Application to Modeling Crack Growth in Additively Manufactured Titanium

December 5, 2019
Lucas N. Koepke, Jolene D. Splett, Timothy P. Quinn, Nikolas W. Hrabe, Jake T. Benzing, Michael R. Frey
Noisy measurement data pose a challenge for changepoint analysis, especially in the presence of multiple changepoints and when the model is nonlinear. We explore various approaches to estimating changepoints and their standard errors under these conditions

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) to achieve isotropic microstructure and retain as-built strength in additive manufacturing titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V)

September 23, 2019
Jake T. Benzing, Nikolas W. Hrabe, Timothy P. Quinn, Ryan M. White, Ross A. Rentz, Magnus Ahlfors
Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) treatments are used to seal internal porosity because defects exist in as-built Ti-6Al-4V parts produced by electron beam melting powder bed fusion. Standard HIP treatment of Ti-6Al-4V parts reduces internal porosity but

Experimental and numerical study of multi-phase medium-Mn TWIP-TRIP steel: influences of strain rate and phase constituents

September 15, 2019
William E. Luecke, Y. Liu, Jake Benzing, X. Zhang, A. Dutta, D. Ponge, C. Oksay, D. Raabe, J.E. Wittig
The present work investigates the room temperature tensile properties of a Fe-12Mn-3Al-0.05C (weight %) twinning- and transformation-induced plasticity (TWIP-TRIP) steel from quasi-static to low-dynamic strain rates ( ̇ = 10-4 /s to  ̇ = 102 /s). The
