Quick Plastic Forming (QPF) is a recent adaptation of Superplastic Forming (SPF) that allows economical fabrication of complex components using superplastic material. QPF requires refined, equiaxed grains and high-angle grain boundaries in the microstructure to enhance sheet deformation by GBS at the high strain rates involved. This study evaluates the effects of laboratory rolling conditions on continuously cast AA5083 in the hot-band condition in anticipation of QPF. Orientation imaging microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray analysis were used to analyze roles of the geometric dynamic recrystallization and particle stimulated nucleation of recrystallization in the microstructure evolution during rolling. A refined microstructure was developed during the rolling procedures but mechanical property data indicated low to moderate ductility and failure by excessive cavity formation. Factors influencing the development of microstructure and mechanical properties during laboratory rolling were investigated. / US Navy (USN) author.

m alloys used in automotive, aerospace and military applications. Superplasticity requires fine grains with high-angle boundaries and resistance to failure by cavitation. OIM permits grain-specific orientation determination and quantitative assessment of the grain-to-grain disorientation distribution as well as grain size measurement in materials. The current work offers significant new insights into the development and response of superplastic microstructures; in particular, OIM data may be employed to delineate the transition from slip to grain boundary sliding in superplastic 5083 materials. / US Navy (USN) author

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited / "Superplastic forming is an emerging industrial technology that allows the production of complex shapes in metallic materials including aluminum. A critical characteristic of materials that are capable of sustaining superplastic forming is a fine grain size. In this study a commercial aluminum-magnesium-manganese alloy received in the as-cast condition was subjected to various thermomechanical processes intended to refine the grain size. Particle stimulated nucleation (PSN) theory was employed to develop the thermomechanical processes. These processes all involved initial homogenization and hot working. Subsequent annealing treatments were intended to control the size and size distribution of second phase particles, such as Al6Mn. Strain energy was introduced through cold rolling followed by recrystallization anneals. Samples were analyzed using orientation-imaging microscopy to examine the effect of processing variables on the recrystallized grain size." p. i. / Ensign, United States Navy
