Achieving Superplasticity and Superplastic Forming through Severe Plastic Deformation

Abstract

The application of severe plastic deformation to metals provides a convenient procedure for achieving nanometer and submicrometer microstructures. Several different processing methods are available but Equal-Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) is especially attractive because it provides an opportunity for preparing relatively large bulk samples. This paper describes the use of ECAP in preparing materials with ultrafine grain sizes and the subsequent properties of these materials at elevated temperatures. It is demonstrated that, provided precipitates are present to retain these small grain sizes at the high temperatures where diffusion is reasonably rapid, it is possible to achieve remarkably high superplastic elongations in the as-pressed materials and there is a potential for making use of this processing procedure to develop a superplastic forming capability at very rapid strain rates.
