This final report summarizes work accomplished on superplastic ceramics with special emphasis on developing processing methods for creating ultra-fine structures in iron carbide, quantifying its microstructure and assessing its superplastic characteristics. The two principal objectives of this program are 1 to develop processing methods for achieving stable ultrafine grained in the order of one micron carbide-base materials, and 2 to evaluate and understand the mechanical behavior of ultrafine grained carbides at high temperatures, with special attention to superplastic flow and failure mechanisms.
