Abstract:

Texture analyses, supported by transmission electron microscopy, have shown that in a 10 pct tin bronze, texture changes do not take place until a considerable fraction of the heavily deformed material has recrystallized. Much of the primary recrystallization texture is, accordingly, made up of the 110112 component which has grown from the polygonized subgrains in the cold-worked metal. The annealing textures described in the literature initiate during the latter stages of primary recrystallization and evolve to significant proportions with grain growth. It is proposed that the annealing textures in low stacking-fault energy SFE bronzes and brasses originate with the formation and growth of second-generation twins. Author
