Abstract:

Al-Li alloy, and the mechanically alloyed IN91211 were investigated for superplasticity and enhanced plasticity. The optimum test condition for superplastic deformation, the associated grain boundary sliding and flow localization at non-optimum condition were investigated for Al-Li alloy. The enhanced plasticity at comparatively high strain rates was investigated in IN91211. The mechanical data were analyzed using the concept of threshold stress. The nature and temperature dependence of this threshold stress are being investigated more thoroughly at present.
