English abstract:
Structural applications of near beta titanium alloys are gradually increasing in the aerospace industry because of their high specific mechanical properties and good corrosion resistance. Furthermore, a wide range of microstructures can be obtained by thermomechanical processes. This work determines by the use of EBSD technique the mechanism of restoration active in the near beta titanium alloy Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr-1Zr for deformations in both α + β and β field near to the β transus temperature (Tβ = 803 °C). Hot compression tests are carried out up to 0.7 true strain by means of a GleebleŽ 1500 machine at strain rates of 0.01, 0.1 and 1 s−1. Dynamic recovery of β phase and rotation of the α grains take place predominantly in the α + β field. Further deformation produces continuous dynamic recrystallization of the β phase influenced by the strain rate. Dynamic recovery is observed during deformation above the Tβ, where the misorientation is increasing towards the grain boundaries forming new small grains with a substructure at high strain rates and larger deformation. The stress exponent and the apparent activation energy for the sinh constitutive equations are determined and the microstructural features are correlated with the Zener-Hollomon parameter.
