Deformation Behavior of Semi-Solid ZCuSn10P1 Copper Alloy during Isothermal Compression
The isothermal compression tests of semi-solid ZCuSn10P1 alloy by strain induced melt activation (SIMA) process are carried out by Gleeble-1500 thermo-mechanical simulator, and the same tests are finished to samples of as-cast ZCuSn10P1 alloy. The deformation temperature respectively is 910°C, 920°C and 930°C, and the strain respectively is 0.4 and 0.6, the strain rate is 0.5s-1, 1s-1 and 10s-1. The experimental results indicate that the deformation resistance of semi-solid ZCuSn10P1 copper alloy with smaller, more uniform and rounder solid grain is about half of the as-cast ZCuSn10P1 copper alloy. The deformation resistance of ZCuSn10P1 alloy by SIMA process decreases with the deformation temperature increasing, and the deformation resistance increases with the strain rate increasing.
