Construction of Deformation - Mechanism Maps for Metals and Solid Solution Alloys a New Approach


Materials Engineering, Shiraz University


A new approach has been introduced to construct deformation-mechanism maps for metals and solid solution alloys. For this purpose two computer programs named DEFOR and GRAPH have been written in BASIC to be run on IBM compatible personal computers. Using these programs, deformation - mechanism maps for a number of pure metals and a solid solution alloy (Ti-6wt% Al) have been plotted and effects of grain size and alloying element have been studied.
