The Effect of Strain and Strain Path during Deformation on the Recrystallisation of a Particle Containing Aluminum-Manganese Alloy
The effect of strain path on an aluminium-manganese alloy has been studied using single pass rolling and simple compression tests. Strain paths of 0, 90 and180° have been studied in terms of texture development and recrystallisation behaviour and compared with equivalent positions in the rolled slab. The effects of the individual deformations on the dislocation sub-structure have been studied using transmission electron microscopy. The study has shown that although samples can be deformed to the same strain via nominally the same stain path change the deformation mode can fundamentally influence the sub-structure developed during each deformation stage.
