Deformation Behavior and Dynamic Recrystallization of Hot Deformed GH625 Superalloy
Microstructure evolution during dynamic recrystallization (DRX) of hot deformed GH625 superalloy was investigated by optical microscope (OP) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Hot compression tests were conducted using Gleeble-1500 simulator. It was found that the nucleation mechanism of DRX for the alloy deformed at 1150°C is composed of discontinuous dynamic recrystallization (DDRX) and continuous dynamic recrystallization (CDRX) in the vicinity of the serrated grain boundaries. With the increasing strain, the fraction of the DRX grains increases, while the size of the DRX grains almost remains in the same range. As the deformation temperature increasing, the size and fraction of the DRX grains increase, and no precipitation of intergranular carbides are found when the deformation temperature increases to 1150°C. At lower strain rate, the size and volume fraction of DRX grains decrease with the increasing strain rates. However, the size and volume fraction of DRX grains increase at higher strain rates due to the deformation thermal effect.
