Hot Compressive Flow Behavior of Inconel 600 Superalloy


Article Preview

The flow behavior and associated structural changes of an Inconel 600 superalloy were analyzed by using hot compression tests in the temperature and strain rate ranges of 850–1200 °C and 0.001 to 10 s–1, respectively. The stress–strain curves exhibited the trend typical of materials in which deformation is recovery-controlled at high strain rates and low temperatures, while at low strain rates and high temperatures, the flow curves exhibited a softening typical of recrystallization phenomena. Constitutive analysis was carried out to investigate the hot deformation mechanism using the hyperbolic sine law.
