Microstructure Evolution of Mg-Y-Nd-Zr Alloy during High Temperature Deformation
The variation of the flow stress and the microstructural evolution during hot deformation at different test temperatures and strain-rates are studied. During hot deformation, dynamical recrystallization did not occur completely; after annealing at 523K, microstructural changes due to static recrystallization and small grain sizes of several micrometers and fine nanometer-precipitates can be attained. The stress exponent (n) and the activation energy (Q) for high temperature deformation have been evaluated and the deformation mechanisms at different temperature have also been discussed.
