Microstructure Characterization of Hot Deformed Fe-32%Ni Alloy
Hot deformation behavior and microstructure evolution of Fe-32%Ni alloy were investigated when compressed at the temperature of 1000°C and a strain rate of 2×10-3s-1. The microstructures were analyzed using optical microscope (OM), electron back scatter diffraction (EBSD) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). The results show that the generation and development of dynamic recrystallization (DRX) can obviously refine the grains of Fe-32Ni% alloy and the DRX reached dynamic equilibrium when the strain was high. According to the TEM observations, the DRX microstructure can be categorized into three kinds: grains with low dislocation density, which are DRX nucleations; grains with low dislocation density around the grain boundary and high dislocation density in its interior which means that grains with dislocation density gradient and which are DRX grains in growth; grains with high dislocation density, which are fully work-hardened DRX grains.
