素粉末混合法により作製したTi-6Al-4V焼結合金の高温変形特性 High-temperature Deformation Characteristics of Sintered Ti-6Al-4V Alloy Produced by Blended Elemental Method
The high temperature deformation characteristics of sintered Ti-6Al-4V alloy were investigated using specimens produced by the process of blending of extra-low-chlorine Ti and 60mass%Al-40mass%V master alloy powders, CIP and vacuum sintering. Hot compression tests were carried out using Formaster test machine at the temperatures ranging from 1123 to 1323K and at the strain rates from 1×10<SUP>-3</SUP> to5.8×10<SUP>1</SUP>s<SUP>-1</SUP>.<BR>Cracks are formed more easily in the specimens with lower relative density and at the higher reduction ratio. At the temperatures in the single β phase region, the crack formation becomes more easy at the higher strain rates. On the other hand, higher strain rates rather suppress crack formation at the temperatures in the α+β two phase region. The flow stress, deformation temperature and strain rate can be correlated with Zenner-Hollomon parameter, and the activation energy for deformation is higher than the previously reported value which was obtained using wrought material. Hot deformation converts the coarse microstructures in the as-sintered specimens to refined ones, which are believed to exhibit excellent mechanical properties.
