  • Directionally solidified (DS) and oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) superalloys like CM 247 LC and MA 760 exhibit elongated macrograins. In uniaxial creep tests, the creep strength of such alloys in the direction of the longitudinal grains is higher than that of an equiaxed grain structure, because significantly less grain boundary (GB) segments are perpendicular to the axis of the applied stress. The present study investigates how creep in the longitudinal direction of these alloys is influenced (1) by deviations of individual grain orientations from the optimum growth direction during casting (CM 247 LC) and (2) by the spatial distribution ofmore » the small transverse GB segments (MA 760) for a given grain aspect ratio. In the case of creep ductile CM 247 LC, it was shown that if there is a large fraction of grains that are oriented for single slip, this results in higher creep rates and lower rupture times than if there is only a small fraction of such grains. The study of the influence of grain morphology on creep damage accumulation in the creep-brittle and notch-sensitive ODS alloy MA 760 showed that large scatter in creep rupture lives is related to (1) the stochastic nature of creep damage accumulation on transverse GB segments and (2) the spatial distribution of transverse GB segments. It is the combination of these two factors that results in increased scatter in rupture lives as compared to equiaxed fine grain structures.« less
  • An ultrafine-grained Al6063/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} (0.8 vol.%, 25 nm) nanocomposite was prepared via powder metallurgy route through reactive mechanical alloying and hot powder extrusion. Scanning electron microcopy, transmission electron microscopy, and back scattered electron diffraction analysis showed that the grain structure of the nanocomposite is trimodal and composed of nano-size grains (< 0.1 {mu}m), ultrafine grains (0.1-1 {mu}m), and micron-size grains (> 1 {mu}m) with random orientations. Evaluation of the mechanical properties of the nanocomposite based on the strengthening-mechanism models revealed that the yield strength of the ultrafine-grained nanocomposite is mainly controlled by the high-angle grain boundaries rather than nanometricmore » alumina particles. Hot deformation behavior of the material at different temperatures and strain rates was studied by compression test and compared to coarse-grained Al6063 alloy. The activation energy of the hot deformation process for the nanocomposite was determined to be 291 kJ mol{sup -1}, which is about 64% higher than that of the coarse-grained alloy. Detailed microstructural analysis revealed that dynamic recrystallization is responsible for the observed deformation softening in the ultrafine-grained nanocomposite. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The strengthening mechanisms of Al6063/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanocomposite were evaluated. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Hot deformation behavior of the nanocomposite was studied. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The hot deformation activation energy was determined using consecutive models. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The restoration mechanisms and microstructural changes are presented.« less
  • Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) ferritic steels typically contain a fine dispersion of nanoscopic Y(Al, Ti) oxides, leading to an improvement in mechanical and physical properties. For a rapid prototyping technique, selective laser melting (SLM), was successfully applied to consolidate as-mechanically alloyed ODS-PM2000 (Fe 19Cr 5.5Al 0.5Ti 0.5Y 2O 3; all wt.%) powder to fabricate solid and thin-walled builds of different thickness. Our work is intended to act as a first study to investigate the tensile response of such configurations at room temperature, using miniaturized test specimens along and perpendicular to the growth direction. The 0.2% offset yield strength of as-grownmore » wall builds was inferior to conventional PM2000 alloy (recrystallized), but could be significantly increased by conducting post-build heat treatments. Young s modulus and yield strength showed anisotropy and were enhanced when testing perpendicular to the build growth direction. Electron backscatter diffraction revealed a strong [001] fibre texture along the growth direction, which explains the anisotropic behaviour. In addition, studies on the morphology of the individual fracture surfaces, the grain structure of the cross-section near this region and the size distribution of ODS particles in such builds were conducted. A fine dispersion of precipitates was retained in all SLM builds, and findings suggest that a certain amount of Y is probably still in atomic solution in the as-grown condition and forms new small nanoscopic dispersoids during annealing, which lead to enhanced strengthening.« less
