This paper is concerned with comparison of the tensile properties of Al1100 thin film in a micro-scale to that of Al1100 sheet in a macro-scale. The material properties of Al1100 film and sheet with a thickness of 96 µm and 1 mm respectively have been investigated at strain rates ranging from 0.001 s-1 to 100 s-1. The experiments were conducted with Static Micro-Material Testing Machine (SMMTM) and High Speed Micro-Material Testing Machine (HSMMTM) for micro-specimens and with Instron 5583 and high speed material testing machine (HSMTM) for macro-specimens. A reliable jig system for SMMTM and HSMMTM has been newly developed for easy installation of a specimen and accurate alignment between a specimen and the jig system to enhance the reproducibility of tests. The digital image correlation (DIC) method is employed to measure the axial strain of the specimens. In order to obtain a fine speckle pattern for the DIC method, a novel technique is employed to print the speckle pattern with fine particles by blowing sprayed particles before printing.
The grain sizes of two Al1100 specimens have been compared and the number of grains in the gauge cross-section has been calculated to obtain the grain number which is related to the specimen size effect. Electron Back Scattered Diffraction (EBSD) images were obtained for both micro-specimens and macro-specimens and analyzed to measure the grain size. The Al1100 film with a smaller average grain size shows larger strain hardening than the Al1100 sheet with a larger average grain size.
