Abstract: Dynamic recrystallization behavior of Mg-3.1wt.%Al-0.1wt.%Y alloy was investigated. During extrusion, dynamic recrystallization occurred and very fine microstructure was obtained. We compared the relationship between Zener-Hollomon parameter, Z, and the dynamically recrystallized grain size, drec, and between the normalized recrystallized grain size, drec/d0, where d0 is the initial grain size, and Z for Mg-3.1wt. %Al-0.1wt.%Y with commercial Mg-3Al-0.5Zn alloy. As the result, the dynamically recrystallized grain size of Mg-3Al-0.1Y was finer than that of Mg-3Al-0.5Zn alloy under the equivalent Z, while the initial grain size of Mg-3Al-0.1Y was coarser than Mg-3Al-0.5Zn alloy. The normalized grain size for Mg-3Al-0.1Y alloy was much smaller than that of Mg-3Al-0.5Zn alloy under the equivalent Z. We conclude that small addition of Y to Mg-Al alloys is effective for grain refinement by dynamic recrystallization.

Abstract: High-strength Mg-Y-Zn alloy plate was obtained by friction stir processing (FSP) after casting. In this study, the effect of processing order on the strength of processed specimens was discussed. It was revealed that the microstructures and strength of doubly stirred zone depended on the direction of overlapping pass. In the area of the doubly stirred zone that was affected by the thermal history of Retreating-side, the hardness was 121Hv. It was twice as hard as Base Metal, and harder than the doubly stirred zone that was affected by thermal history of Advancing-side.

Abstract: Fatigue strength of Al5083-O FSW joints was evaluated in the relation of the FSW conditions. Static strength of the joints in a range of FSW conditions was the same as that of base metal. Because the fracture of the joints occurred at the base metal in the tensile tests. Therefore the joint efficiency in tensile strength of joints with the FSW condition of tool rotation: 800 rpmwelding speed: 100 mm/min (800-100), 800-200 and 500-100 are all hundred percent. However, the fatigue strength of those joints with fine static strength varied very much. The joint efficiency for fatigue strength varies from 75% for 500-100 to 31% for 800-200. Crack path in fatigue test was always initiated at the center of back surface of FSW weld zone, and propagated through stir zone. Crack growth rate measurement and fracture surface analysis resulted the difference of the joint efficiency has a connection with the incomplete welding at back surface of joints.

Abstract: Strength of Al5083-O FSW joints was evaluated, in relation to FSW conditions. Static strength of the joints was found to be enough because base metal fracture occurred in the tensile tests of joints for some FSW conditions. However, the fatigue strength of those joints with fine static strength varied significantly. For example, in tensile strength of joints with the FSW condition with tool rotation: 800 rpm- welding speed: 100 mm/min (800-100), 800 rpm-200 mm/min (800-200) and 500 rpm- 100 mm/min (500-100), each condition of FSW joint efficiency were all hundred percent. In contrast, joint efficiency for fatigue strength varied from 75% for 500-100 to 31% for 800-200. Crack path in fatigue test was always initiated at the center of back surface of FSW weld zone, and propagated through stir zone. The variance of fatigue strength is believed to be attributed to the stirred condition at back surface.

Abstract: Bulk metallic glass (BMG) exhibits remarkable properties such as high strength, good stiffness and good corrosion resistance. However, the wear resistance of amorphous metals is not excellent as expected their high strength. It is thought that large local shear bands easily change into cracks for debris formation. The effective obstruction of shear band formation might be applied to improve the wear resistance of BMG. In this study, we tried to suppress shear band deformation by fine crystalline phase dispersion formed by semi-conductor laser irradiation. The microstructures of irradiated Zr-based BMG specimens were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The fine dispersions of crystalline phases are observed in the amorphous matrix. The optimum condition for laser irradiation was discussed.

Abstract: The formability in friction stir and arc welded 5083 Al alloys was investigated. The elongation in friction stir welded material under uniaxial tensile test increased with the decrease in friction heat flow during friction stir welding (FSW) and the value of dome height under biaxial bulge test increased with friction heat flow. The ductility improved according to changes in FSW condition and FS-welded alloy sheet exhibited excellent formability.

Abstract: Tribological properties are found to change with microstructure. In Ni-P amorphous alloy, annealing conditions were varied with laser irradiation parameters such as scanning speed and laser power. The increase in hardness affected by scanning speed. A peak of hardness was observed as the function of scanning speed. This is because, the formation of nanoscopic composite structure by distribution of crystalline Ni3P compounds in amorphous matrix is the hardest structure.
