Microstructure Evolution of Near Gamma TiAl Intermetallic under Tensile Impact Loadings at High Temperatures
The effect of temperature and strain rate on the mechanical behavior and microstructure evolution of Near Gamma Ti-46.5Al-2Nb-2Cr (NG TiAl) was investigated at temperatures ranging from room temperatures to 840 under strain rates of 0.001, 320, 800 and 1350s-1. The TEM analysis indicated that deformation twinning and stacking fault are the main deformation modes under dynamic loadings and dislocation slip is another important deformation mode under quasi-static loadings. The density of deformation twinning and/or stacking fault increases with the increased temperature and strain rate.
