Application of electric pulses during plastic deformation of a metal results in reduction of flow stress. This reduction can be due to both thermal and athermal effects. Increase in the mobility of dislocations due to electron wind is known as electroplastic effect. Almost all the studies on electric pulse aided tensile tests, current is applied through the entire specimen and it contributes to higher joule heating. In this work, electric pulse aided tensile tests are carried out on modified specimens with a provision to apply the electric current through centre portion of gauge length of specimen to reduce the overall joule heating. Finite element simulations are carried out to validate the specimen geometry in terms of stress strain behaviour. Results of single pulse experiments show that there is a significant effect of current carrying length on instantaneous stress drop (increased from 70 MPa to 122.5 MPa when length increased from 30 to 60 mm). Multiple pulse experimental results revealed that specimen with high current carrying length experienced a higher temperature because of accumulation of heat. Comparison of stress drops with electric pulse aid with that of corresponding temperatures with only thermal aid shows that electric pulse caused higher stress drop. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
