Recrystallization Behaviour of Cold Rolled Aluminum Alloy AA 3103 in a Magnetic Field


Article Preview

The recrystallization behavior of 71% cold rolled aluminum alloy 3103 was investigated by measuring the crystallographic texture and the grain microstructure during heat treatment at 288°C, 310°C and 330°C in a magnetic field of 17 T. The results revealed that the application of a magnetic field substantially enhances recrystallization kinetics.
