Investigation of Retained Strains during Multipass Deformation


Article Preview

Double-hit compression tests were carried out at different temperatures and strain rates for a nickel based alloy and a stainless steel. Using microhardness measurements the retained strains after the first and second pass were investigated as a function of the amount of deformation, temperatures as well as strain rates and dwell durations. In general, the retained strain decreases with increasing dwell durations. It is shown that at a given total amount of deformation, the retained strain is reduced for the as deformed grains that have not been recrystallized yet, but increased for the recrystallized grains, when comparing double hit with single hit compression tests.
