Achieving superplasticity in a Cu-40% Zn alloy through severe plastic deformation

Neishi, K., Horita, Z. and Langdon, T.G. (2001) Achieving superplasticity in a Cu-40% Zn alloy through severe plastic deformation Scripta Materialia, 45, (8), pp. 965-970. (doi:10.1016/S1359-6462(01)01119-8).

Record type: Article


The Cu–40%Zn alloy is a classic two-phase material exhibiting superplasticity at elevated temperatures. This report demonstrates that the application of severe plastic deformation at a temperature associated with a phase transformation leads to grain refinement in the alloy and the development of a superplastic ductility at a high strain rate and relatively low temperature.
