Paper Title:
Investigation of Flow Stress Behavior and Microstructural Evolution of 7050 Al Alloy
  Abstract

The plastic deformation behaviors of 7050 Al alloy were investigated by compression tests at temperatures ranging of 250°C450°C under constant strain rates of 0.01s−1, 1s−1 and 10s−1. The results showed that all the flow curves consisted of three stages, i.e. strain-hardening, strain-softening and steady state-strain. Initially, the stress rises steeply at microstrain deformation, and then increases at a decreased rate, followed by a strain-softening until a steady state stress. The stress level decreases with increasing deformation temperature and decreasing strain rate, which can be represented by a Zener-Hollomon parameter in an exponent-type equation, 1 19 7.202 σ p 80.71 sinh (1.64 10 Z) = ⋅ −  × − ⋅ −  . Elongated grains with serrations developed in the grain boundaries were observed; the dynamic recrystallization (DRX) occurs with increasing temperature and dislocation density, and the shape of grain at steady state is nearly equiaxial. It can be concluded that the DRX phenomenon is sensitive to the temperature and the dynamic flow softening is mainly as the result of dynamic recovery and DRX.
