This paper is concerned with an investigation of the deformation behaviour of an Al-Cu alloy during tensile testing in the semi-solid state. It was carried out by fast in-situ X-Ray microtomography at ESRF, Grenoble. Deformation was performed at constant velocity, which was chosen to be small enough so as not to affect the acquisition of the images. It is observed that deformation is accompanied, initially, by some liquid flow from the adjacent regions towards the deformed zone. Then pores form in the liquid films and grow until they occupy a significant part of the cross section of the specimen. Quantification of this phenomenon was carried out thus leading to a better understanding of pore formation in semi-solid mixtures.
