Abstract

The tensile behavior of bimodal nanocrystalline Al-7.5Mg alloys was investigated using experiments and two-dimensional axisymmetric elastic-plastic finite element method (FEM). Cryomilled nanocrystalline powders blended with 15% and 30% unmilled coarse-grained powders were consolidated by hot isostatic pressing followed by extrusion to produce bulk bimodal nanocrystalline Al-7.5Mg alloys, which were comprised of nanocrystalline grains separated by coarse-grain regions. The calculated stress-strain curves have acceptable agreement with experimental curves of the bimodal structures. The bimodal Al-7.5Mg alloys show reasonable ductility while retaining enhanced strength compared to conventional alloys and nanocrystalline metals.
