Data for In Situ TEM Mechanical Testing in Irradiated Oxide Dispersion Strengthened Alloys - v1.0. This is a dataset comprised of videos and raw load-displacement text files of experiments run to demonstrate the use of in situ TEM mechanical testing to find meaningful mechanical properties of as received, self-ion, and proton irradiated Fe-9%Cr ODS. The desire to work at small scale in characterization of irradiated materials to reduce costs and improve throughput, require the development of novel methods to assess mechanical properties in volume-limited irradiation damage layers.
In this work micropillar compression (archived separately), cantilever bending, lamellae indentation, and clamped beam fracture testing is conducted on ion-irradiated Fe-9%Cr ODS to find yield stress, elastic modulus, flow stress, and fracture toughness. Micropillars in compression allow us to define a minimum sample dimension, which approaches the obstacle spacing of the material, at which size effects are observed. This relationship between sample dimension and obstacle spacing defined through micropillar compression is extended to a new testing geometry, cantilever bending, and material property, flow stress. Lessons learned during the cantilever bending informed the clamped beam design for conducting fracture testing on a ductile engineering alloy at micrometer scales. Finally, lamellae indentation was conducted to link qualitative observations of the microstructure under load with literature strength of obstacle values. By combining an understanding of the microstructure of irradiated Fe-9%Cr ODS and the in situ TEM technique, one can find the bulk-like mechanical properties of ion irradiated Fe-9%Cr ODS.

This dataset includes all original bright field transmission electron microscopic videos of each Fe-9%Cr ODS cantilever bend test conducted. It also includes the corresponding raw load-displacement data in text file format.
This dataset includes all original bright field transmission electron microscopic videos of each clamped beam test conducted on a model Fe-9%Cr ODS alloy. It also includes the corresponding raw load-displacement data in text file format.
These videos demonstrate the use of lamellae indentation for qualitative analysis and the use of the MicroViBe algorithm to better visualize and understand obstacles in Fe-9%Cr ODS.
These files are text format files for the ABAQUS extended finite element modeling (XFEM) as part of my dissertation.
