Recrystallisation and Concurrent Precipitation in Hot Rolled AA3103


Article Preview

The recrystallisation kinetics experimentally measured on a supersaturated AA3103 after hot rolling is analysed using a numerical model. It is shown that temperature and nucleation inhibition due to precipitation on the subgrain structure are the two most important parameters in controlling the recrystallisation kinetics. On the opposite, particle pinning of recrystallised grain boundaries is negligible while pinning of subgrain boundaries during recovery and solute drag are relevant but second order effects.
