Microstructural Evolution and Deformation Mechanisms for Superplasticity of NiAl Intermetallic


Article Preview

The microstructural evolution during superplastic deformation of the extruded stoichiometric NiAl polycrystals were systemically investigated in various conditions of temperature, strain rate and strain by means of optical microscopy (OM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Consequently, The deformation microstructures corresponding to the large tensile elongation consisted of subgrains, low angle grains as well as high angle grains, which indicated that continuous dynamic recrystallization (CDRX) process was operating during superplastic deformation.
