The Influence of Deformation Conditions on Structure of Fe-Al Intermetallic Phase ‒ Based Alloys
The major problem restricting universal employment of intermetallic phase base alloy is their low plasticity which leads to hampering their development as construction materials. The following work concentrates on the analysis of microstructure and plasticity of ordered Fe3Al (D03) and FeAl (B2) during hot plastic deformation process.. The microstructure analyses applying optical electron microscopy and EBSD method have revealed the structure reconstruction processes occurring in Fe3Al and FeAl alloys. It has been shown that different mechanisms of the structural changes ensue from the thermal plastic strain in the investigated alloys, which influences their technological plasticity.
