Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the deformed geometry: (A) for the simulations and (B) for the experiments. Shadow graphs shown in (B) contain the minor axis of the center section.
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the deformed geometry from the experiment and simulation for solute drag and HR
Grahic Jump Location

Grahic Jump Location
Micrograph of specimen deformed in the solute drag regime with ram velocity of vz=0.025 mm/s: (A) unrecrystallized structure with compression axis oriented vertically; (B) magnification of bulged section with compression axis oriented horizontally; (C) further magnification of the bulged region, with compression axis oriented horizontally, showing serrated grain boundaries
Grahic Jump Location
Micrograph of specimen deformed in the hardening and recovery regime with a ram velocity of vz=25 mm/s: (A) recrystallized structure with variation in grain size along vertical compression axis; (B) magnification of bulged section with compression axis oriented horizontally and revealing fine grains along regions of shear; (C) further magnification of the bulged region, with compression axis oriented horizontally

Grahic Jump Location
Effective stress from finite element simulations plotted in units of ln(σII/μ): (A) undeformed specimen; (B) solute drag regime (SD); (C) thermally activated hardening and recovery (HR)
Grahic Jump Location
Simple notion that the deformed geometry at two distinct cross sections 1 and 2 will reflect the strain rate sensitivity m, following from force balance
Grahic Jump Location
Yield stress data for AA 5182 plotted in the appropriate manner for solute drag. The line, n=3, represents a strain rate exponent of 1/3. Deviation from the dashed line provides an indication of an active mechanism other than solute drag.
