Influence of Severe Plastic Deformation on the PLC Effect and Mechanical Properties in Al 5XXX Alloy
In this work, Al-Mg-Mn-Si alloy (5483) in the as-received and severe plastically deformed states was used. Plastic deformation was carried out by hydrostatic extrusion, and three different true strain values were applied 1.4, 2.8 and 3.8. All specimens were subjected to tensile tests and microhardness measurements. The investigated material revealed an instability during plastic deformation in the form of serration on the stress-strain curves, the so called Portevin-Le Chatelier effect It was shown that grain size reduction effected the character of the instability.
