Abstract

The mechanical properties characterization of thin foils to be used as target in high intensity accelerator requires non standards techniques. Previous studies, focused on foils after annealed, cold rolled and heat treatment after rolled, in addition to foils at different thickness, have been carried out to estimate the sensitivity of the small punch test (SPT) technique in foils. In this research we studied the degradation of the mechanical properties of foils due to irradiation damage by high intensity proton beams. For this new study, two samples of SS316L foils have 25 μm thickness were exposed to proton bombardment at 3.6 MeV, and approximately 300 μA of current for a period of 3 hours and 40 hours, separately. The SPT technique revealed that the un-irradiated specimens exhibited the largest load and deformation before failure, rather than the irradiated foils. The electron microscopy observations (SEM) revealed high cross slips and pseudo-cleavage density combined with multiple deformation twinning after irradiation to high energy. The mechanical behavior can be explained by the microstructure. The crack propagation path is in a zigzag fracture mode when multiple deformation twinning occurs close to the stretched zone of the foil and failure. Changes of the SPT measurements were found and the degradation from ductile to brittle crack mode is attributed to radiation damage effects.
