Paper Title:
Study on Cavity Growth in Uniaxial Tension of ZK60 Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

Cavity growth is a typical microstructure feature in superplastic forming (SPF) of materials. Substantial growth and interlink of cavities in superplastic deformation usually lead to reduction in elongation, even to failure. Consequently, it is necessary to investigate the mechanism and model of cavity growth. In this paper, experimental studies on cavity growth were carried out by means of superplastic tension of ZK60 magnesium alloys. Scanning electronic microscope (SEM) was employed for observation of fractography. Experimental cavity radius and volume fraction were determined by optical microscopy and corresponding picture-based analysis software. It is found that, the fractured surfaces after a superplastic elongation have a mixed characteristic of intergranular cavities and dimples. Further, the cavity growth is identified to follow a exponentially increasing mode.
