High Temperature Deformation Mechanism Maps of NiAl


Article Preview

In order to analyze high temperature deformation behavior of NiAl alloys, deformation maps were constructed for stoichiometric NiAl materials with grain sizes of 4 and 200 µm. Relevant constitute equations and calculation method will be described in this paper. These maps are particularly useful in identifying the location of testing domains, such as creep and tensile tests, in relation to the stress-temperature-strain rate domains experienced by NiAl.
