High Temperature Deformation Behavior of Beta-Gamma TiAl Alloy


Article Preview

In this study, high-temperature deformation behavior of newly developed beta-gamma TiAl alloys was investigated in the context of the dynamic-materials model (DMM). Processing maps representing the efficiency of power consumption for microstructure evolution were constructed utilizing the results of compression test at temperatures ranging from 1000oC to 1200oC and strain rates ranging from 10-4/s to 102/s and Artificial Neural Network simulation method. With the help of processing map and microstructural analysis, the optimum processing condition for the betagamma TiAl alloy was investigated. The role of β phase was also discussed in this study.
