Abstract

High-speed repetitive continuous extrusion forming process (R-Conform process) was performed on the Al-Fe-Cu alloy. The microstructural evolution and mechanical properties were studied by x-ray diffraction, electron backscatter diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and tensile testing. The results show that a significant improvement of tensile ductility concurs with a considerable loss of tensile strength before four passes, after that the process on mechanical properties variation tends to be steady, indicating an accelerated mechanical softening occurs when comparing to low-speed R-Conform process. Microstructure characterization indicates that the accumulated strain promotes the transformation of low angle boundaries to high angle boundaries, thus leading to the acceleration of continuous dynamic recrystallization process, and the precipitates are broken, spheroidized and homogeneously distribute in Al matrix as increasing R-Conform passes. Massive microshear bands are observed after initial passes of R-Conform process, which may promote continuous dynamic recrystallization and further grain refinement during high-speed R-Conform process.
