Abstract [en]

Alloy 825 is a nickel-base alloy that is common in applications with high stresses and corrosive environments. It is commonly processed by hot forging, but there are few data about how hot forging affects the microstructure, which is critical for both mechanical and corrosion performance. Here, the alloy was hot forged in a commercial thermomechanical process to three industrially-relevant strains and the microscture was examined using scanning electron microscopy and EBSD. The tensile properties were also measured after thermomechanical treatment. Dynamic recrystallization was prevalent during the process, so increasing the forging strain leads to smaller grains and also higher dislocation density. Data were combined to allow the 0.2% proof stress to be calculated as a function of forging strain. All forging strains were sufficient to meet the criteria of the relevant industrial standard for this material. The maximum yield strength and ultimate tensile strength were obtained after forging to a true strain of 0.9 were 413 MPa and 622 MPa, respecitvely, with a ductlity of 40%. This may be used to tailor thermomechanical treatments to achieve precise mechanical properties and serve as a basis for future studies into the corrosion performance of this alloy as a function of forging strain.

Abstract [en]

Alloy 825 material was studied using a Gleeble-3800 thermosimulatorby performing single-hot compression experiments.Optical microscopy and electron backscatter diffraction wereutilized to characterize the microstructure. Dynamicrecrystallization is not considerable in the as-cast alloy anddislocation recovery is deemed to be dominant. Based on thisfinding, the effect of adding trace amounts of alloying additionson the mechanical properties of cast alloy 825 was studied, withemphasis on whether or not dynamic recrystallization occurred.The results show that dynamic recrystallization was moreprevalent under all test conditions in samples containing a traceamount of magnesium, but not for the conventional alloy.However, alloying with trace magnesium did not lead to animprovement of the mechanical properties. Instead, processingmaps for hot forging of conventional Alloy 825 were required toidentify optimal working parameters and to achieve dynamicrecrystallization. The hot deformation behavior of cast Alloy 825was characterized by using dynamic materials modelling of hotcompression data. The results show that the maximum powerdissipation efficiency is over 35%. The highest efficiency isachieved in the temperature range of 1100 ℃ - 1250 ℃ and instrain rates in the range of 0.01 ≤ strain rate / s ≤ 0.1. The optimumprocessing parameters for good strain hardening are obtained inthe temperature range between 950 ℃ and 1100 ℃ with strainrates of 0.3 ≤ strain rate/ s ≤ 10.0. In addition, the influence of thedeformation level on the recrystallization and microstructuralchanges in Alloy 825 during hot forging operations attemperatures between 950 °C and 1200 °C was studied. Themaximum yield strength and ultimate tensile strength wereobtained after forging to achieve a true strain of 0.9 were 413 MPa and 622 MPa , respectively, with a ductility of 40%.However, Alloy 825 is often supplied as annealed bars.Therefore, the effect of the forging strain magnitude andsubsequent annealing on the microstructure, strengtheningmechanisms and room temperature mechanical properties wereinvestigated to assess the suitability of current industrialpractice. The results showed that the majority of strengtheningwas attributed to grain refinement, the dislocation densities thatarise due to the large forging strain, and due to solid solutionstrengthening. The results of calculations are in excellentagreement with experimental data, with less than 1% difference.These results can be used by future researchers and industry topredict the strength of Alloy 825 and similar alloys, especially inmaterial after a completed hot forging operation.

Abstract [sv]

denna avhandling studerades effekten av deformationsgrad pådynamisk rekristallisation av gjuten Alloy 825 genomexperiment i Gleeble-3800 termomekanisk simulator. Måletmed arbetet är att använda ljusmikroskop och EBSD för attstudera dynamisk rekristallisation i A 825 och dess effekt påmikrostrukturen. Dynamisk rekristallisation är inte betydande,men istället har en substruktur formats med lågvinkligakorngränser.Baserat på dessa resultat, studerades effekten av småmagnesiumtillsatser på de mekaniska egenskaperna av gjutenstruktur med fokus på huruvida dynamisk rekristallisation skereller inte. Resultaten visar att dynamisk rekristallisation varvanligare under alla testförhållanden i prover innehållandemagnesium, men inte i något fall av konventionell A 825.Legering med magnesium ledde emellertid inte till enförbättring av de mekaniska egenskaperna. Av denna anledningdrog man slutsatsen att en varmbearbetningskarta för smittkonventionell (magnesiumfri) A 825 krävdes för att identifieraoptimala processparametrar och uppnå dynamiskrekristallisation.Deformationen av gjuten A 825 undersöktes med hjälp av endynamisk materialmodell och data från kompressionsprover.Resultaten visar att den maximala effektöverföringen är över 35%. Den högsta verkningsgraden är vid ett temperaturintervall av1100 ℃ - 1250 ℃ och en töjningshastighet på 0.01 ≤  töjningshastighet / s ≤0.1 . De optimala varmbearbetningsparametrarna för goddeformationshärdning erhålls i temperaturområdet mellan 950℃ och 1100 °C med en töjningshastighet av 0.3 ≤  töjningshastighet/ s ≤ 10.0.Vidare undersöktes effekten av reduktionsgrad pårekristallisation och mikrostrukturutveckling vid smide inomtemperaturområde 950° C och 1200° C. Den maximala sträckochbrottgränsen erhölls efter smide till sann töjning av 0,9. Sträckgränsen var 413 MPa och brottgränsen 622 MPa, med enbrottförlängning på 40 %. Emellertid levereras materialet ofta isläckglödgat tillstånd. Därför undersöktes effekten av smidemed olika reduktionsgrad följt av mjukglödgning därhärdningsmekanismer och mekaniska egenskaper vidrumstemperatur undersöktes. Detta genomfördes för attbedöma lämpligheten av nuvarande industriell praxis.Resultaten visade att majoriteten av hårdnade tillskrevs småkorn, dislokationstäthet som uppstod på grund av den storasmides-deformationen och härdning genom fast lösning.Resultaten av beräkningarna överensstämmer medexperimentella data med mindre än 1 % skillnad. Resultaten kani framtiden användas av andra forskare och i industrin föroptimering av mekaniska egenskaperna för A 825 och liknadelegeringar.
