An EBSP investigation of alternate microstructures for superplasticity in aluminum-magnesium alloys
MetadataShow full item record
This study proposes to provide insight into alternative grain boundary structures in two aluminum-magnesium alloys processed to achieve superplastic behavior. A commercially processes superplastic 5083 aluminum alloy, SKY5083, and a laboratory processed, non-commercial superplastic Al-10Mg-0.1Zr alloy have been selected for examination. Although alloy content, processing routes, and deformation conditions vary for each material, a comparison of results may provide evidence that alternate grain structures and boundary misorientation distributions may support superplasticity in the GBS regime, depending on the TMP processing and alloy system chosen.
