The commercial hot-rolled bars of LD10 alloy (grain size 25~75µm) are pretreated via proper recrystallization annealing (temperature 380°C, 420°C and 460°C) and solution annealing (temperature 500°C). The average elongation is increased from 158% to 270%, 223%, 219% and 233% respectively and the maximum elongation is 321% (500°C, 3.3×10-4s-1). The test results show that the alloy can present certain superplasticity owing to structural effect of dynamic recrystallization refining during superplastic deformation of coarse-grained LD10 alloy. Large and deep cavities form in grain boundaries and result in intergranular fracture after larger superplastic tensile deformation. And a large amount of metal filaments appear on grain surfaces. The formation of filaments is attributed to viscous flow of solid-liquid mixture in grain boundaries caused by grain-boundary sliding. The appearance of solid-liquid mixture makes grain-boundary sliding easier.
