Abstract

The Zn-22% Al eutectoid alloy is capable of exhibiting very high superplastic elongations, in excess of 2000% in tension, when the grain size is in the range of ∼1-10 μm. This paper describes the fabrication of a submicrometer grain size in the Zn-22% Al alloy by subjecting the samples to intense plastic straining in torsion under high pressure (∼5 GPa) at room temperature. Observations after straining revealed a heterogeneous microstructure with grain sires in the range of ∼0.1-0.5 μm. As a result of the low melting temperature of the alloy, the high internal stresses introduced by torsion straining are relaxed and the grain boundaries are close to an equilibrium configuration.
