Effect of Processing Route on Microstructure and Texture Development in ECAP of Al-Ti Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

Microstructure and texture evolution during equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) of Al-5 mass%Ti alloy are investigated for up to 8 passes via routes A and BC. Platelet-shaped Al3Ti particles in the Al-5mass%Ti alloy are cracked severely with repetitive ECAP passes, and the mean size of the Al3Ti particles is decreased with increasing the number of ECAP passes. Microstructural observation showed that an Al–Ti supersaturated solid solution is formed during the ECAP process. It is also found that the Al-Ti alloy after ECAP by route A and route Bc methods have very different microstructures. Namely, after ECAP by route Bc, the fine Al3Ti particles are homogeneously dispersed in Al matrix, while the microstructure has highly anisotropic distribution after ECAP by route A.
