Effect of Texture on High Temperature Deformation Behaviors of Ti-6Al-4V Alloy


Article Preview

Textures developed during hot rolling process may affect the high temperature deformation behaviors of Ti alloys, but their relation has not been well understood or quantitatively analyzed yet. A series of load relaxation and creep tests for hot rolled Ti-6Al-4V alloy has been conducted in this work to clarify the effect of textures on the deformation behaviors of the alloy under 700 °C and the result was analyzed by using an internal variables approach. The internal strength σ* was found to vary significantly by the textures, but not by the temperature change, while the texture effect was found to decrease at higher temperatures.
