Abstract

Evolution of grain morphology in a fine grained Al-Mg-Mn-Cu alloy during uniaxial superplastic deformation is studied quantitatively. Grains undergo elongation, as well as dynamic grain growth along all directions, the separation and analysis of which is attempted here. Based on such analysis, the computed true grain growth rate along directions transverse to the tensile axis are found to exceed that parallel to the tensile axis. Possible mechanisms for this new observation are suggested. A unique relationship between grain boundary sliding rate and dynamic grain growth rate is found at different applied strain rates; this indicates that grain boundary sliding and grain boundary migration rates are inherently connected through the same mechanism.
