Research on Hot Deformation Behavior of 3003 Al Alloy Prepared by Different Melt-Treatment Methods
3003 Al alloy with different metallurgical quality were obtained by different melt-treatment methods, which were deformed by isothermal compression in the range of deformation temperature 300-500°C at strain rate 0.0l-10.0 s-1 with Gleeble-1500 thermal simulator. The results show that the material is sensitive to positive strain rate. The hot deformation activation energy (Q) bears linear relationship with inclusion content (H) of 3003 Al alloy prepared by different melt-treatment, Q=35.62 H+171.58, the activation energy of 3003 Al alloy prepared by high melt-treatment is the lowest (174.62 KJ×mol-1), which is beneficial to the material hot plastic deformation. The critical strain of 3003 Al alloy prepared by different melt-treatment methods is investigated through the work hardening rate. Finally, the critical conditions of the investigated alloy were determined to predict the dynamic recrystallization occurrence in the paper.
