Effect of Equal Channel Angular Pressing on Densification Behavior of Al 5083 Alloy Powder


Article Preview

In this present study Al-5083 alloy powders were prepared from elemental powders using high energy ball milling under optimized milling parameters. Various properties such as crystalline size, particle size and morphology have been studied using X-Ray diffraction analysis and Scanning Electron Microscopy. It was found that Al-5083 alloy was formed and nanocrystalline size particles were achieved. These nanocrystalline Al-5083 alloy powders were consolidated using equal channel angular pressing with and without application of back pressure. Physical and mechanical properties such as density and hardness are studied.
