Microstructure and Properties of T2 Copper Tube Produced by Severe Hot Rolling
In this study, the microstructure evolution as well as mechanical properties of T2 copper tube during severe hot rolling has been investigated. Owing to the severe hot rolling deformation and high rolling temperature, the microstructure of T2 copper tube evolved from initial cast structure into relatively homogenous and equiaxed grains during the process, which was testified through the results of optical microscope observation. Besides, the microhardness measurements were taken, from which the results gained were in correspondence to the microstructure transformation.
