Rheological Analogies of Superplastic and Viscous-Plastic Materials Flow


Article Preview

There are presented original experimental results of studying rheological behavior of Vitralloy 1 (Zr41Ti14Cu12.5Ni10Be22.5), which shows in the certain strain rate range stable linear viscous (Newtonian) flow. Comparative analysis of these results and the results related to other superplastic alloys as well as to crystallizing metallic melts has been carried out.
