The Features of Deformation Behavior of Ultra-Fine Grained Titanium and Aluminum Alloys under Conditions of High Strain Rate Superplasticity
The stress-strain curves at high strain rate superplasticity were analyzed for Ti-6Al-4V and aluminum 1420 industrial alloys in ultra-fine grained state produced by severe plastic deformation. For both alloys the observed strengthening effect can be caused by grain growth under the above mentioned conditions resulting to increase of grain boundary sliding resistance. In the case of aluminum alloy the grain recovery can be accompanied by significant change in phase composition which is also stimulates the recrystallization process.
