Abstract: To evaluate the microstructures and mechanical properties in cross-roll rolled pure copper, comparing with conventionally rolled materials, this work was carried out. Pure copper (99.99 mass%) sheets with thickness of 5 mm were cold rolled to 90% thickness reduction by cross-roll rolling (CRR) and subsequently annealed at 400 °C for 30 min. Also, to analyze the grain boundary character distributions (GBCDs), electron back-scattered diffraction (EBSD) technique was employed. As a result, the cold rolled and annealed materials consisted of significantly refined grains than that of the initial material (100 mm). Especially, the CRR processed material showed more refined grain size (6.5 mm) in average than that (9.8 mm) of conventional rolling (CR). These grain refinements directly affected an increase in mechanical properties. Therefore, the microstructural and mechanical properties development observed in both processes was systematically discussed in terms of the effective strain originated by the plastic deformation.

Abstract: This study evaluated the microstructure and mechanical properties enhancement of cross roll rolled Ni-10Cr alloy, comparing with conventional rolled material. Cold rolling was carried out to 90% thickness reduction and subsequently annealed at 700 °C for 30 min to obtain the fully recrystallized microstructure. Particularly, cross roll rolling was carried out at a tilted roll mill condition of 5º from the transverse direction in RD – TD plane. Application of cross roll rolling on Ni-10Cr alloy contributed to the notable grain refinement due to higher effective strain than that of conventional rolling, consequently, average grain size was refined from 135 µm in initial material to 4.2 µm in cross roll rolled material. Furthermore, //ND texture in CRR material was well developed than that of CR material, which contributed to the mechanical properties and formability enhancement.

Abstract: This study evaluated the microstructure and mechanical properties of friction stir welded lap joints. Inconel 600 and SS 400 as experimental materials were selected, and friction stir welding was carried out at tool rotation speed of 200 rpm and welding speed of 100 mm/min. Applying the friction stir welding was notably effective to reduce the grain size of the stir zone, as a result, the average grain size of Inconel 600 was reduced from 20 μm in the base material to 8.5 μm in the stir zone. Joint interface between Inconel 600 and SS 400 showed a sound weld without voids and cracks. Also, the hook, along the Inconel 600 alloy from SS 400, was formed at advancing side, which directly affected an increase in peel strength. In this study, we systematically discussed the evolution on microstructure and mechanical properties of friction stir lap jointed Inconel 600 and SS 400.

Abstract: This study evaluated the microstructure and mechanical properties enhancement of cross roll rolled Ni-10Cr alloy, comparing with conventional rolled material. Cold rolling was carried out to 90% thickness reduction and subsequently annealed at 700 °C for 30 min to obtain the fully recrystallized microstructure. For annealed materials after rolling, to investigate the grain boundary characteristic distributions, electron back-scattering diffraction technique was introduced. Application of cross roll rolling on Ni-10Cr alloy contributed to the notable grain refinement, consequently, average grain size was refined from 135 μm in initial material to 4.2 μm in cross roll rolled material. These refined grain size led to an enhanced mechanical properties such as yield and tensile strengths. Furthermore, <111>//ND texture in CRR material was well developed than that of CR material, which contributed to the mechanical properties and formability enhancement.

Abstract: This work was studied for the changes of thermal properties on GTD-111 DS (Directional Solidification) gas turbine blade. In this study, gas turbine blades with 24,000~34,000 firing hours was used to get more effective result, gradually applied hot isostatic pressing (HIP) and post-heat treatment for these samples. In the latter steps, we observed changes of γ´ phase affected in material properties, and microhardness test was carried out to evaluate mechanical properties according to changes of γ´ fraction and shape. Experimental result shows, changes of γ´ fraction and shape were affected by HIP and post-heat treatment. And also mechanical properties changes such as micro-hardness related to γ´ phase. In this study, we explained changing transition of microstructure according to γ´ fraction distribution.

Abstract: In order to evaluate the microstructure and mechanical properties of cross roll rolled Ni-30Cr alloy, comparing with conventionally rolled material, this work was carried out. The materials were cold rolled to 90% in thickness reduction by conventional rolling and cross roll rolling methods and subsequently annealed at 700°C for 30 min. After this work, in order to evaluate the grain boundary character distributions of the materials, electron back-scattered diffraction technique was introduced. The application of cross roll rolling was more effective to develop the microstructure and mechanical properties than those of conventional rolling. As a result, the grain size was significantly refined to 1.3 μm in conventional rolling and 0.6 μm in cross roll rolling, compared to initial material (30 μm), respectively. Also, these grain refinements directly affected an increase in mechanical properties. In the present study, we systematically discussed the relationship between grain size and mechanical properties in terms of an increase in effective strain.

Abstract: To evaluate the effect of rolling process on microstructures and textures development, this work was carried out using pure Ta sheets. For this work, conventional rolling (CR) and cross roll rolling (CRR) as a deformation process were introduced, pure Ta sheets were cold rolled to 90% in thickness reduction. After this, to obtain the recrystallized microstructure on cold rolled materials, the recrystallization heat-treatment was performed at 1200°C for 60 min under the high vacuum state. Also, to analyse the grain boundary character distributions of the annealed sheets, electron back-scattered diffraction method was introduced. As an experimental result, increase in strain rate led to the development of texture with its texture component of <111> at conventional rolling and cross roll rolling, in common. Therefore, in this study, we systematically discussed the texture development due to increase in effective strain.

Abstract: In order to investigate the texture development in cold rolled and annealed tantalum (Ta), the present study was carried out. For this work, cold rolling was performed up to ~ 96% reduction in thickness, and annealing was performed at elevated temperature up to ~ 1200 °C for 60 min under the high vacuum to prevent the surface oxidation. As a result, increase in the reduction ratio of the cold rolled Ta was effective to develop the a fibre texture, with its texture components such as (001)<110> and (112)<110>. Also, resulting grain size was more refined by increase in reduction ratio, consequently, 96% cold rolled and annealed material showed the best refined grain size. However, in case of annealed material, g fibre texture with its texture component, such as (111)<121> and (111)<112>, was developed by increase in annealing temperature. In this study, we systematically discussed the texture development due to the increase in reduction ratio.
