2 GPa both below the HEL and above it. It is known that an irreversible densification occurs in glasses compressed beyond the elastic limit in both static and dynamic conditions [25]. The process of densification can play the role of a plastic deformation mechanism for glasses [26], which preserves them against cracking under compression. 5 GPa. 3. Dynamic Tension of Rubber It is known that elastomers are characterized by an ability to undergo large reversible deformations. Study of spall phenomena in rubber [27] has shown that the behavior of this material at fracture is different from that of other solids, including polymers.

20. Possible initiation sites for shear-band formation; (a), (b) geometrical sites; (c)-(f) microstructural sites. (From Meyers, Subhesh, Kad, and Prasad (1994)). 20e). Martensitic lenses or laths are crystallographically oriented within each grain, and interlath or interlens sliding is a favored deformation mechanism because the retained austenite has a lower flow stress than the transformed region. Thus, there will be a tendency for the lenses or laths to orient the:tns(:lves with the shear direction.
