Paper Title:
An Investigation on High Strain Rate Superplasticity of an Al-Cu-Mg-Ti-Sr Ingot Alloy
  Abstract

An ingot aluminum alloy (Al-Cu-Mg-Ti-Sr) with high strength and high strain rate superplasticity has been successfully developed through a conventional manufacture route consisting of casting, heat treatment, hot extrusion with a low extrusion rate of only 10:1, hot-rolling and further cold-rolling, which is cost effective and suitable for large volume production industries. The tensile test result showed the alloy possesses not only a high ultimate strength of 513.85MPa at room temperature, but also a good high strain rate superplasticity with the tensile elongation of 174~224%, the flow stress of 17.1~33.9MPa and the strain rate sensitivity m-value of 0.174~0.293 in the initial strain rate of 3.16×10-2~1.0×10-1s-1 and at the temperature of 748K~793K. Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) analysis showed that the superplastic deformation has no relationship with liquid phase. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis of fracture surface and surface showed that the superplastic deformation results from fine grain boundary sliding and dislocation slip.
