Dynamic Recrystallization of 3104 Aluminum Alloy during Isothermal Compression Deformation at Elevated Temperatures
The dynamic recrystallization characteristic of 3104 alloy has been investigated by isothermal compression deformation at temperatures from 573K to 773K under constant strain rates ranges from 10-3s-1 to 1s-1. It was shown that the form of flow stress curves were very sensitive to temperature and strain rate. At high temperatures and low strain rates, dynamic recrystallization of 3104 alloy deformation occured. The critical value for dynamic recrystallization start was determined from an inflection point that was observed in the plot of work hardening rate vs. flow stress and verified metallograhically based on quenching samples interrupted during deformation. In the experimental domain studied, the ratio of the critical strain for the initiation of dynamic recrystallization to that of the peak strain falled in the range 0.4-0.6. Furthermore, the dependence of εc on Zener-Hollomon parameter( Z) has been developed.
