Here we elucidate the mechanisms of plastic deformation and fracture of tungsten laminated composites. Our results suggest that the mechanical response of the laminates is governed by the plastic deformation of the tungsten plies. In most cases, the impact of the interlayer is of secondary importance.

Severely cold-rolled ultrafine-grained tungsten foils possess exceptional properties in terms of brittle-to-ductile transition (BDT), toughness, and tensile ductility. The motivation for investigating laminated composites is to determine whether a bulk material can be made that retains the ductility of the thin tungsten foils.

In this paper we analyse W-AgCu, W-Cu, W-V, and W-Pd laminates in their as-produced and annealed conditions (e.g. 10, 100 and 1000 h at 1000 °C (1273 K) in vacuum). The analyses comprise (i) the mechanical characterisation by means of three-point bending (damage tolerance), Charpy impact (BDT), and tensile tests (total elongation to fracture) as well as (ii) the in-depth analyses of the microstructure by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Auger electron ... mehr
