Abstract: Texture evolution and superplastic deformation behavior of a quasi-single phase Zn-0.3wt%Al have been investigated. It was attempted to produce a stable and fine-grained microstructure in a dilute Zn-Al alloy through a proper thermomechanical treatment process (TMTP). The grain size of about 1 µm was obtained in the Zn-0.3 wt.% Al alloy and a relatively coarse grain size of 10 µm was also obtained through a subsequent aging treatment. The fine-grained material showed typical rolling texture with basal poles tilted about 30 degrees away from the ND toward RD, while the coarse-grained material showed a typical recrystallization texture with basal poles parallel to ND. A series of load relaxation and tensile tests were conducted at room temperature. According to the internal variable theory of structural superplasticity, the grain boundary characters of fine and coarse-grained materials were different from each other. A large elongation of about 1400% was obtained in fine-grained material at room temperature.

Abstract: High temperature deformation behavior of a Ti-Al intermetallic compound has been investigated in this study. Specimens with a near gamma and a lamella structure were obtained by performing heat treatment at temperatures from 1200 to 1330°C for 24 hr, respectively, and stabilized at 900°C for 4 hr followed by air cooling. A series of load relaxation tests has been conducted on these samples at temperatures ranging from 850 to 950°C to construct flow curves in the strain rate range from 10-6/s to 10-3/s. Strain hardening was observed even at the temperature of 950°C in both the near gamma and the lamella structures. Further aging treatment for 12 hr at the test temperatures has been found to cause negligible softening in both microstructures, providing the strong applicability of this alloy system in the temperature range.

Abstract: Thermal fatigue is a complex phenomenon encountered in materials exposed to cyclically varying temperatures in the presence or absence of external load. Continually increasing working temperature and growing need for greater efficiency and reliability of automotive exhaust require immediate investigation into the thermal fatigue properties especially of high temperature stainless steels. In this study, thermal fatigue properties of 304 and 429EM stainless steels have been evaluated in the temperature ranges of 200-800oC and 200-900oC. Systematic methods for control of temperatures within the predetermined range and measurement of load applied to specimens as a function of temperature during thermal cycles have been established. Thermal fatigue tests were conducted under fully constrained condition, where both ends of specimens were completely fixed. Thermal fatigue property of STS 304 was superior to that of STS 429EM. Load relaxation behavior at the temperatures of thermal cycle was closely related with the thermal fatigue property.
