Grain Growth and Mechanical Properties of Nanograined Bulk Fe-25Ni Alloy


Article Preview

The grain growth and mechanical properties of nanograined bulk Fe-25at%Ni alloy prepared by an inert gas condensation and in-situ warm consolidation technique were investigated. About 43% high temperature face-centered-cubic (FCC) phase and 57% low temperature body-centered-cubic (BCC) phase were observed in the sample at room temperature, which was significantly different from that of the corresponding conventional coarse-grained alloy. The in-situ X-ray diffraction results show that the start and the finish temperature of BCC to FCC phase transformation are 450°C and 600°C, respectively. The isothermal grain growth exponent n from t k D D n n ¢ = − 1 0 1 for nanograined single FCC phase Fe-25at%Ni alloy is 0.38 at 750 °C . The mechanical properties changing with the grain size were studied by means of microindentation test.
