Abstract: This paper discusses the development of a novel processing route to produce ultra finegrain bulk alloy forgings; the microstructural response of these forgings to thermal exposure; and the comparison of mechanical properties to those from conventionally processed material. A Ni- 20Cr [wt%] alloy was processed by near-isothermal multi-axis forging to a grain size of approximately 1 μm. A heat-treatment study over the range 900 to 1200°C was conducted to determine the resultant grain size as a function of time and temperature. Tensile properties were measured at room temperature, 500°C, and 930°C. High-cycle fatigue properties were measured at room temperature. The room-temperature tensile strength was approximately 2.5 times greater than that of conventionally processed Ni-20Cr. Fatigue data showed that the room-temperature highcycle fatigue run-out stress was greater than 100% of the yield stress.

Abstract: The influence of severe thermomechanical treatment via multiple forging on the formation of a nanocrystalline (NC) structure in bulk samples of Alloy 718 and ATI 718Plus has been investigated. It was observed that a step-wise decrease of processing temperature from 950 down to 575°C allowed the refinement of the initial coarse grain structure to a NC state. Investigations of structural changes in the deformed samples have shown that extending the temperature interval of dynamic recrystallization to low homologous temperatures resulted in the formation of a fine-grained recrystallized structure. The temperature of NC structure formation in ATI Alloy 718Plus was 50-100°С higher than that required for alloy 718. This was due to the presence of the additional γ′-phase, which increased the recrystallization temperature. This decreased the total strain required to produce NC structure, as compared with Alloy 718. It was observed that increasing the total strain and decreasing temperatures step-wise during deformation via multiple forging resulted in a uniform structure across the cross-section of the samples. The room temperature mechanical properties of the investigated alloys with various grain sizes are also compared.
