Orientation Mapping Study on the Inhomogeneous Microstructure Evolution during Annealing of 6013 Aluminum Alloy
Orientation mapping in transmission electron microscope was successfully applied to study microstructural changes at the initial stage of recrystallization in the aluminum alloy with a bimodal second-phase particle distribution. The alloy samples were reversibly cold rolled resulting in the formation of laminar structure with zones of localized strain around large second-phase particles. Orientation mapping and in-situ investigations carry information about the processes which are active in the deformation zones during annealing.
