Abstract
High temperature plastic flow properties of two phase TiAl alloys containing 45 to 49 at.%Al have been investigated in thermo-mechanically grain refined materials in order to clarify the favourable microstructure and chemical composition for TiAl based superplastic materials. Grain sizes of thermomechanical treated materials and their grain size stability during subsequent high temperature deformation strongly depend on chemical composition. It was found that Ti-46at%Al offers the best [MATH] ratio which produces a fine and stable microstructure, whilst exhibiting superior superplasticity at temperatures exceedig 1100°C and a strain rate of around 1x10-4s-1 (with m-value of 0.44 at 1100°C and 0.64 at 1150°C) as well as preferred mechanical properties at temperature of up to 1000°C. This alloy was proposed as a baseline alloy for superplastic materials to be later modified by third elements effective for the formation of metallic phase. Correspondingly, effects of heat treatment on changes in microstructure and tensile properties have been studied in fine grain TiAl alloys in order to estimate the possibility of improving high temperature strength after superplastic forming. A new kind of microstructure consisting of coarse lamellar colonies and fine colony boundary grains of [MATH] and lamellar (to be refereed to as partially-transformed structure) was found to be obtained by heat-treatment of just above the [MATH]-transus. It was also found that the partially-transformed structures exhibit a better combination of room temperature ductility and high temperature strength than any other microstructure previously observed.

Comment afficher un lien OpenURL ?

La norme OpenURL est un protocole de transmission de métadonnées permettant de décrire la ressource à laquelle vous souhaitez accéder.

Il s'agit de construire un lien contenant les métadonnées et pointant vers le serveur OpenURL de votre choix. Ce serveur OpenURL peut alors par exemple indiquer l'accessibilité de la ressource, proposer des services complémentaires (recherche, export de référence...). Un tel lien peut être généré selon des moyens différents :

  • Si la bibliothèque gérant votre abonnement a défini un serveur OpenURL pour ses utilisateurs, les liens OpenURL apparaissent automatiquement sur les pages appelées.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • Vous pouvez utiliser un module complémentaire pour votre navigateur (Firefox ou I.E.) qui permet d'afficher les liens OpenURL présents dans une page (voir http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). Vous devrez désactiver ce module si vous souhaitez utiliser le serveur OpenURL que vous avez défini ou celui de votre bibliothèque.
