Paper Title:
Microstructure of Pure Ni Subjected to High Pressure Torsion
  Abstract

Plastic deformation leads to a structural refinement by introducing low angle dislocation boundaries and high angle boundaries in the initial coarse grains. To understand the mechanisms for the structural refinement and to establish the structure-strength relationship requires a precise characterization of key structural parameters, namely the boundary spacing and boundary misorientation angle. This study gives the results of such a characterization of pure Ni subjected to high pressure torsion (HPT) up to a strain of 300. The structural analysis was carried out by transmission electron microscopy in the longitudinal sample section in which the detailed structural features can be resolved. It is found that the microstructure in the HPT Ni samples is dominated by a lamellar structure. The spacing of the lamellar boundaries decreases and their misorientation angle increases with strain following a power law up to strain of 12, above which saturation is reached at a strain of about 34. The distribution of lamellar spacings normalized by their respective average values at each strain show an identical form. This scaling behavior is discussed also with reference to other metals and processing routes.
