Superplastic Property of the Ti-6Al-4V Alloy with Ultrafine-Grained Heterogeneous Microstructure

Abstract : Ti–6Al–4V alloy having a heterogeneous microstructure composed of ultrafine-equiaxed-α-grains and fine-lamellar-α-grains is investigated for microstructural changes during superplastic deformation at temperature of 700 °C. The Ti–6Al–4V alloy having an optimum fraction of fine-lamellar-α-grains exhibits an excellent superplastic property and the highest elongation of 583% (tested at 700 °C 10−3 s−1). This is mainly due to the optimized activation of grain-boundary-sliding and additional accommodation mechanism associated with frequent occurrences of dynamic recrystallization and β precipitation at boundaries during deformation of the heterogeneous starting microstructure. The present result suggests the possibility that optimizing the starting microstructure so as to have an optimum heterogeneous-microstructure serves as an additional stress accommodation mechanism and leads to a large superplastic elongation.
