Comparing the Role of Dislocations during Plastic Deformation of Nanocrystalline Nickel and Coarse-Grained Nickel during Cold Rolling

  • Andreas Kulovits (a1), Scott M Mao (a2) and Jorg M Wiezorek (a3)


We investigated plastic deformation of fully dense electrodeposited nanocrystalline (NC) Ni with an average grain size of 30-40nm. We studied the microstructural evolution during cold rolling of NC Ni to a reduction in thickness up to 76% (true strain equivalent ∼1.42). We determined changes in texture, grain morphology, grain boundary character and grain sizes as a function of cold rolling strain, using X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy TEM. We compared our results of the NC Ni with our own results for cold rolled coarse grained (CG) Ni. Differences and similarities in deformation behavior are discussed with respect to well documented findings in the literature.
