Shear Pressing for Grain Refinement of Al-Mg-Li Sheet

Abstract:

Article Preview

A novel shear-deformation technique, named ‘shear pressing’ (SP), was developed for fabrication of plate-shaped fine grained metallic materials. The principle of SP is that a material is subjected to shear deformation by utilizing pressing with inclined plane dies. A micrometer order grain structure was obtained in an Al-Mg-Li alloy at strain of ε = -2.3 by utilizing this technique. The grain refinement sequences during pressing were examined by electron backscatter diffraction. The enhancement of grain refinement to the Al-Mg-Li alloy was compared with plane strain compression (PSC) at similar strains. The effect of the shear strain on the accelerated grain refining during compressing has been discussed.
