Coupling of ultrasounds with the Portevin–Le Chatelier serrations as observed in aluminium-magnesium alloy in mini-samples tensile tests

Tomasz Brynk , Krzysztof Kurzydłowski


This work presents the first observation of ultrasound and eddy currents coupling with Portevin–Le Chatelier serrations during tensile straining of aluminium-magnesium alloy small-size samples, of a gauge section 5.0 × 0.8 × 0.6 mm3. Significant changes in serration characteristics were detected and quantified using Fast Fourier Transform analyses in the 120–160 MPa stress range under the influence of 2.5 and 5.0 MHz ultrasound, and a 60 kHz eddy current. Digital Image Correlation measurements showed that the change in singular slip bands movement is surprisingly regular all along the sample gauge sections accompanied with a reduction in the serrations' frequency
