AISI 4130 - Tangent modulus

AISI 4130 - Tangent modulus

AISI 4130 - Tangent modulus

(OP)
What is a reasonable value of tangent modulus for AISI 4130 material? ( 1Cr 0.5Mo Temperature 350 F )

RE: AISI 4130 - Tangent modulus

Cannot answer simply because:

The Tangent Modulus is the slope of the stress-strain curve at a specific point. Therefore it is not a single value, but varies with the stress. At low stresses, the tangent modulus is the same as the normal Young's Modulus. As the stress approaches the yield stress, the modulus decreases, and this local modulus is called the Tangent Modulus. Since you need to know the stress to know the tangent modulus, it becomes an iterative problem. In a nonlinear material analysis, you can define the full stress-strain curve or use a bilinear approximation with a "hardening slope" which reduces the modulus to a constant single value after exceeding the yield stress.

Thanks sdm919 .

I should have clarified. The Tangent modulus was
for bilinear-idealization. So the second slope,
after reaching the yield point is what I was
referring to.

Instead of asking us, plot a stress/strain curve from Et data and fit whatever curve you want.

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?
