Microstructure and Texture Evolution of a Cold Rolled Ni-Cr-W Alloy after Annealing
A Ni-5.7%Cr-25.2%W (wt%) alloy was deformed by cold rolling in different reduction conditions (50%, 70%, and 90%) and then annealed under hydrogen atmosphere. Microstructure and texture evolutions were analyzed using Electron BackScattered Diffraction (EBSD). Orientation Distribution Functions (ODFs) and stored energy were calculated from neutron diffraction measurements. A strengthening of the α-fiber texture was observed after 90% cold rolling and a homogenous microstructure was obtained after annealing at 900°C.
