Mechanical Behaviour


The deformation behavior of a Burgers oriented α-β-Ti-13Mn bimetallic bicrystal was studied at two plastic strains, 0.52 and 2.08 pct. Two single crystals, α and β, each corresponding to the orientation of its respective bicrystal component were also investigated. The stress axes were\([1\bar 7610]_\alpha \) and [1218]β. The interface planes were\((\bar 1\bar 3580)_\alpha \) and\((\bar 334)_\beta \) and lay in the x’-z’ plane. The deformation behavior of the a component differed from that of the a single crystal because of plastically induced stresses,T y’z’ ,T x’z’ ,T x’y’ , and σ x’x’ . Prismatic slip and\(\{ 11\bar 21\} \) twinning were found in the single crystal α whereas the bicrystal revealed additionally pyramidal andc + a slip, the latter at the interface. Slip on the front and back surfaces was different and both thec + a and twinning systems acted to maintain compatibility. Slip in the β single crystal and the β bicrystal component were quite similar. However, there were differences in the intensity and amount of primary slip, (231)\([\bar 11\bar 1{\text{]}}\), on the front and back surfaces. The diminished amount of (231)\([\bar 11\bar 1{\text{]}}\) slip on the back surface was due to plastically induced stresses, and on the front surface the primary slip cross slipped to\((1\bar 2\bar 3)[\bar 11\bar 1]\) slip which triggeredc + a slip in α. On the back surface the dominant slip system was\((21\bar 1){\text{ }}[\bar 11\bar 1{\text{]}}\) which acted in response to the plastically induced stresses. An approximate calculation revealed that the interface deformation zone had about twice the flow stress of the average bicrystal stress.
