Paper Title:
Hot Workability of Ultrafine-Grained Aluminum Alloy Produced by Severe Plastic Deformation of Al6063 Powder and Consolidation
  Abstract

Al6063 powder was subjected to severe plastic deformation via high-energy mechanical milling to prepare ultrafine-grained (UFG) aluminium alloy. Uniaxial compression test at various temperatures between 300 and 450 °C and strain rates between 0.01 and 1 s-1 was carried out to evaluate hot workability of the material. Microstructural studies were performed by EBSD and TEM. The average activation energy and strain rate sensitivity of the hot deformation process were determined to be 280 kJ mol-1 and 0.05, respectively. The deformation temperature and applied strain rate significantly affected the grain structure of UFG Al alloy. A finer grain structure was obtained at lower temperatures and higher strain rates. The formation of highly misoriented and equiaxed grains also revealed that dynamic recrystallization occurred upon hot deformation. Furthermore, elongated grains with high dislocation density were observed that disclosed partial dynamic recrystallization of the aluminum matrix.
