Abstract
Ultrafine-grained (UFG) materials produced by severe plastic deformation (SPD) may show both enhanced ductility and strength and hence resolve the so-called strength-ductility paradox. To gain mechanistic insights into such resolution, the effect of high-pressure torsion (HPT) on the microstructure and mechanical behavior was studied using a cast Al-7 wt. % Si alloy. As expected, the grain size decreased while the fraction of high-angle grain boundaries and microhardness increased due to HPT processing. However, tensile testing at room temperature revealed a simultaneous increase in strength and ductility compared to the as-cast sample. The samples showing simultaneous increase in strength and ductility also showed an increased contribution from grain boundary sliding (GBS), even at room temperature, which is attributed to the existence of a high fraction of high-angle and high-energy grain boundaries. It is proposed that the occurrence of moderate GBS, providing ductility, in very small size grains provides Hall-Petch strengthening and this suggests a potential combination for simultaneously achieving high strength and high ductility in SPD-processed UFG materials. © 2017 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
