  • The room-temperature mechanical behavior of a directionally solidified columnar-grained, single-phase {beta} (B2)-(Ni-20 at. pct Fe-30 At. pct Al) intermetallic alloy deformed along the hard {l_angle}001{r_angle} direction has been characterized. The 0.2 pct offset compressive yield stress was found to be comparable to that of {l_angle}001{r_angle} single crystals of stoichiometric NiAl. The dislocation substructure consisted of a preponderance of long, straight a{l_angle}111{r_angle} screw dislocations on {l_brace}112{r_brace} planes, with cross-slip on {l_brace}123{r_brace} and {l_brace}110{r_brace} planes. The superpartials were not resolved by weak-beam imaging conditions, indicating that the antiphase boundary (APB) energy of NiAl is not reduced significantly by the Fe addition. Themore » dislocation substructure was analyzed as a function of strain and compared to the dislocation substructure in {l_angle}001{r_angle} NiAl and body-centered cubic (bcc) metals deformed at low homologous temperatures. The debris left behind by a{l_angle}111{r_angle} screw dislocations consisted of prismatic edge dipole loops 5 to 25 nm in diameter.« less
  • A study of the high-temperature deformation behavior of a binary {alpha}{sub 2} + {gamma}Ti-47 at. pct Al-3 at. pct Cr alloy was undertaken. The alloy was produced by induction melting and exhibited a structure of coarse columnar grains oriented in the radial direction. After a solution treatment at 1,653 K for 3,600 seconds and aging at 1,223 K for 28,800 seconds, a nearly lamellar structure was formed. Deformation behavior was investigated by compression-strain-rate-change tests at strain rates ranging from 10{sup {minus}6} to 10{sup {minus}3} s{sup {minus}1} and temperatures ranging from 1,073 to 1,373 K. This alloy shows at low temperature/highmore » stress a stress exponent of about 5. The deformation behavior is explained in this regimen by a dislocation climb mechanism, which includes a threshold stress. Finally, at the lowest stress levels and highest temperatures of testing, a stress exponent of about 3 is observed, which suggests that deformation is controlled by the viscous glide of dislocations.« less
  • The superplastic deformation of the L1{sub 2}-type Co{sub 3}Ti alloy was observed as functions of temperature, strain rate and initial grain size, and then characterized by the flow behavior, the constitutive equation and the deformation microstructure. In the region of higher strain rate (also lower temperature and larger initial grain size), the flow curve exhibited a stress peak followed by a rapid stress decrease, and dynamic recrystallization (DRX) occurred. The activation energy of deformation in this region was estimated to be Q = 158 kJ/mol, similar to that for the bulk diffusion. It is suggested that the mechanism associated withmore » DRX is responsible for the deformation in this region. In the region of lower strain rate, (also higher temperature and smaller initial grain size), the flow curve exhibited continuous work hardening until fracture, and the concomitant motion of grain boundary sliding and grain growth occurred. The activation energy of deformation in this region was estimated to be Q = 80 kJ/mol suggestive of that of grain boundary diffusion. Large tensile elongation, i.e., superplastic deformation beyond 200% was observed in the latter region. It is suggested that the grain boundary sliding-based mechanism is responsible for the deformation in this region.« less
  • Specimen length-to-diameter ratios and specimen/platen end conditions are important to interpretation of, and comparisons between, uniaxial compression tests on brittle materials. When differing {ital l}:{ital d} ratios and specimen/platen end conditions are used to test pressure-sensitive materials, observations may not be readily comparable owing to the different and nonuniform triaxial stress states. Specimens of brittle Fe- and Ni-modified Al{sub 3}Ti intermetallic alloys having relatively low and different {ital l}:{ital d} ratios were tested in compression by Giangxeng {ital et} {ital al}. and Turner {ital et} {ital al}., respectively. Qualitative observations on the macroscopic deformation and failure modes (shear failure andmore » distributed microcracking) indicate that the alloys are pressure-sensitive and that the results were possibly complicated in differing degrees by test configuration. Thus, direct comparison of these results with those obtained earlier for Al{sub 3}Ti by Yamaguchi {ital et} {ital al}., who used a significantly greater {ital l}:{ital d} ratio, may not be altogether useful. Approaches to minimizing end effects are reviewed.« less
  • The solution to the problem of improving the mechanical properties (including cyclic strength) of structural materials is largely dependent on our knowledge of the laws governing the development of microplastic deformations in them. The effect of heat and mechanical treatment on the elastoplastic properties and fatigue resistance of the commercial aluminum alloys AK4-1 and D16 is analyzed.
