Abstract

Real-time studies of the deformation behavior of a-brass bicrystals were conducted via in-situ synchrotron white beam X-ray topography (SWBXRT). The object of this work was to understand the role of internal interfaces such as grain boundaries, in controlling the mechanical behavior of materials. A brass bicrystal, in which the two grains made 5° of tilt and 11° of twist with respect to each other was grown by the Bridgman method. Observations were performed by straining the bicrystal in a microtensile stage while stop-action X-ray diffraction topographs were taken. Slip initiated in the grain with the most favorable Schmid factor at a stress level of 1.4MPa which was 5% of the macroyield stress. Since the grain boundary acted as a barrier to slip, the next grain did not slip until the dislocation pile-up at the grain boundary reached a critical value.
