Experimental approach for microscale mechanical characterization of polymeric structured materials obtained by additive manufacturing

Abstract : In this paper, an original experimental method is developed for local strain characterization at the surface of additively manufactured polymeric materials. The process used herein is material extrusion. This experimental method is based on the use of microscopic speckle pattern deposited at the surface of micro single edge notched specimen (μ_SENT) made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). Two configurations of filament orientation were used for the specimen manufacturing. Images of the μ_SENT specimen surface were recorded during in-situ tensile test. The quantitative analysis of images was made by digital image correlation (DIC). The evolutions of the local strain heterogeneities and the crack tip are evidenced on the kinematic fields. It is shown that the crack propagates in the low resistance path which is the interface area between filaments. It is also evidenced that the intersection of perpendicular filaments in two adjacent layers blocks crack growth. The local strain evolutions at the surface of the specimen are compared to the macroscopic response of the material. The method developed herein allows the determination of the materials mechanical properties. The identification of the crack tip location using digital image correlation (DIC) and J-integral calculation lead to plot the J-R curve. The J-R curves comparison of the two specimen configurations shows that the fracture toughness is directly related to the material structure.
