Tensile Testing Low Density Multilayers: Aluminum/Titanium



Daniel Josell, D van Heerden, D Shechtman, David T. Read


Yield stresses, ultimate tensile strengths, and specific strengths of aluminum/Titanium multilayer thin films are determined from the results of uniaxial tensile tests. The plasticity in the stress-strain curves. The nature of the fracture surfaces, and the relationship of the yield stress and the bilayer thickness are discussed. Properties are compared with those of other multilayer materials published in the literature.
