Analysis of Intragranular Misorientation Related to Deformation in an Al-Mg-Mn Alloy


Article Preview

Intragranular misorientation reflects strain generated during deformation with dislocation glide. The SEM/EBSP (scanning electron microscope/ electron back scatter diffraction pattern) technique provides is “kernel average misorientation (KAM)” as the most appropriate quantity to evaluate the strain or the stored energy for a given point. The KAM is defined for a given point as the average misorientation of that point with all of its neighbors. In the present paper two analyses of the intragranular misorientation using the SEM/EBSP technique for a cyclic deformation at room temperature and a high temperature deformation in an Al-Mg-Mn alloy are reviewed.
