The deformation behaviour of alpha and beta brass was investigated at temperatures just above and below the ordering temperature of beta. Deformation of beta, unlike alpha, was found to be highly sensitive to temperature and strain-rate. The predominant mode of deformation in beta at temperatures below T c (the ordering temperature) was by grain boundary sliding and at temperatures above T c it was by slip. Furthermore, beta did not exhibit any work-hardening at temperatures above T c. The elevated temperature deformation behaviour of two-phase bicrystals of alpha-beta brass, with inter-phase boundary normal to the tensile axis, depended on the deformation of the individual phases.
