Structure Evolution and Deformation Mechanisms in Ultrafine-Grained Aluminum under Tension at Room Temperature


Article Preview

Deformation mechanisms occurring by tension of ultrafine-grained aluminum processed by equal-channel angular pressing at room temperature are investigated using comparative study of the microstructure before and after tensile testing as well as deformation relief on the pre-polished surface of the sample tested. Deformation behavior and structure evolution during tension suggest development of grain boundary sliding in addition to intragrain dislocation slip. Contribution grain boundary sliding to the overall deformation calculated using the magnitude of shift of grains relative to each other is found to be ~40%.
