Experimental Study of Mechanical Properties of Electroformed Nanocrystalline Ni-Mn Alloys
In this paper, the measurements of microhardness and tensile properties are performed to the electroformed Ni-Mn alloys which the mean grain size is near to or less than 100nm. It is studied that the effect of average deposition current density on microhardness and tensile properties of the alloys and the effect of post-electroforming annealing on microhardness of the alloys. The results show that with the increment of average current density, microhardness and strength of the alloys increase and elongation decreases because of the increment of Mn content and the decrement of grain size of the alloys. Microhardness of the alloys are slightly improved after annealing.
