Effects of Deformation on Electric Conductivity in Al-Zr Alloys


Article Preview

Electric conducting behavior, sectional residual stress and texture in deformed Al-Zr alloy were investigated in order to investigate effect of deformation on electric conductance. {111} textures were developed in the wire of deformed Al-Zr alloy and most strong intensity of {111} texture was observed at the core in the cross section of the wire. Residual stress was mainly measured at the surface and , especially, measured at the core in the case of 4.5Φ wire, also, electric conductance was higher at the surface than at the core. This means that electric conductance might be affected by distribution of the residual stress.
