Crystallographic Texture Development in CP Ti Subjected to ECAP
In this article we present the results of the experimental research and those of the processes developing the crystallographic texture of computer modeling in CP Ti in the process of 1-4 equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) passes along the route ВС. The goal of the research was to determine the active deformation mechanisms, depending on the strain degree, accumulated in the ECAP process. The research was carried out by the method of X-ray analysis and by computer modeling. Computer modeling was carried out on the example of visco-plastic self-consistent model. Thereby, the basal, the prismatic and the pyramidal (of the 1st and of the 2nd order) slip systems were considered as possible active slip systems. Besides, the possibility of activating the tensile and the compressive twinning systems were taken into consideration. As the result of the carried out experimental research, the objective laws of forming preferred orientations were determined. For the first time, with the help of computer modeling, made up to the 4th ECAP pass, it was shown that the crystallographic texture development processes in CP Ti in ECAP, realized at temperature of 723 K, can be explained by activation of the basal, prismatic and pyramidal (of the 1st order) slip systems and compressive twinning systems. Therefore, the increase of the ECAP passes can lead to amplification of contribution of the basal and prismatic slip systems, as well as the insignificant weakening of the contribution of pyramidal slip systems (of the 1st order). Moreover, the compressive twinning can become obvious only in the 1st ECAP pass.
