The hot-workability of a two-phase (γ+α2) alloy, Ti-48A1-2Cr-2Nb, has been studied by conducting isothermal compression tests to 0.8 true strain over the temperature range of 975–1200°C at strain rates between 1×l0−1 and 3×10−3s−1. A deformation map showing temperature, strain rate, soundness of deformation, and isostress contours was constructed. Good workability is found from the low temperature/low strain rate regime to combinations of high temperature and either high or low strain rate. The upper-limit flow stress for good workability is between 450 and 500 MPa. Deformation induced softening occurs at all conditions. SEM and TEM examinations of the deformed specimens reveal that non-uniform deformation takes place at all strain rates, but cracking occurs mostly at high strain rates (e.g. 1×10−1s−1), especially combined with low temperatures. The cracking appears to progress primarily along γ/α2interfaces. It is thought that non-uniform deformation develops channels of shear bands, which in turn promote localized recrystallization, thus accommodating higher strains.
