The hot working behaviour of aluminium composites reinforced with SiC particles (26vol. %) has been studied by the Process Map method. Temperatures ranging from 300°C to 525°C and strain rates ranging from 0.001 s-1 to 0.1 s-1 have been used. In particular the map calculated at 0.5 true plastic strain shows two domains which are considered safe for hot working deformation process: the first located about the temperature of 325-375°C and strain rates of 0.008-0.03 s-1; the second spacing widely on all strain rates and closing to temperature of 500-525°C. At lower temperature (300-350°C) the material exhibits flow localization and banding phenomena, suggesting instability regime for plastic flow. Process Map sounds like a very promising method for hot deformation process optimisation, even if further tests at higher strain rates are required to approach industrial process parameters.

Abstract

The hot working behaviour of aluminium composites reinforced with SiC particles (26vol. %) has been studied by the Process Map method. Temperatures ranging from 300°C to 525°C and strain rates ranging from 0.001 s-1 to 0.1 s-1 have been used. In particular the map calculated at 0.5 true plastic strain shows two domains which are considered safe for hot working deformation process: the first located about the temperature of 325-375°C and strain rates of 0.008-0.03 s-1; the second spacing widely on all strain rates and closing to temperature of 500-525°C. At lower temperature (300-350°C) the material exhibits flow localization and banding phenomena, suggesting instability regime for plastic flow. Process Map sounds like a very promising method for hot deformation process optimisation, even if further tests at higher strain rates are required to approach industrial process parameters.
