Monotonic and cyclic behavior of the nitrogen ion-implanted commercially pure-titanium
This research aims to study the behavior of monotonic and cyclic plastic deformation on commercially pure titanium which has undergone surface treatment using the nitrogen ion implantation method. The doses of 2.0×1017 ions/cm2 and the energy of 100 keV were used to implant the nitrogen ions into the CpTi. Monotonic properties tests were performed in a laboratory air and at room temperature using ASTM E8 standard specimens. Fatigue and corrosion fatigue tests were conducted in a laboratory air and in artificial saline solutions, at room temperature using ASTM 1801-97 specimens. Tensile tests were carried out with constant displacement rate and fatigue tests were carried under fully-reversed with stress-controlled conditions with stress amplitudes 230, 240, 250, 260, 270 and 280 MPa. The results showed the material properties of monotonic behavior for CpTi and Nii-Ti; tensile strength (σu) of 497 and 539 MPa and for 0.2% offset yield strength (σy) of 385 and 440 MPa, respectively and of cyclic behavior; cyclic strength coefficient (k’) of 568.41 and 818.64 and cyclic strain hardening exponent (n’) of 0.176 and 0.215, respectively. This study has succeeded in producing useful new material properties that will contribute to the field of material science and engineering.
