Plasticity of Low Aluminum Alloys from Fe-Al System
Alloys based on intermetallic phases from the Fe-Al system they belong to a group of high-temperature creep resisting materials of advantageous physicochemical and mechanical properties at an elevated and high temperature. In general, limitation on the capacity for a broad application of intermetals from the Fe-Al system, e.g. as an alternative to expensive alloy steels of specific properties, is their insufficient plasticity, which is a factor inhibiting further their development as constructional materials.
The aim of this work is study about the analysis of the influence of hot deformation parameters like a temperature and strain rate on the plasticity and structure changes in alloys on the base Fe-Al system. These alloys are competitive for their cost and properties in comparison with stainless and acid resistance steels. Were analyzed the properties determined in hot compression test of cast alloys Fe-28Al, Fe-28Al-5Cr, contain microelements Mo, Zr, C, B. The tests were carried out on the range of temperature 700°C % 1100°C with strain rate 0,1 s-1. The results indicated that the Cr addition had an positively effect on the plasticity properties. Moreover exhibited that the Cr addition had an influence on the mechanism of the rebuilding the structure changes.
