Microstructure and texture of cast BixSb1-x alloy processed by angular reduction extrusion Conference Paper uri icon


  • Multipass Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) with an area reduction in the exit channel enables one to produce heavily deformed and textured materials. Such an approach is effective for microstructure breakdown and for developing texture to bulk materials. Cast BixSb1-x alloy was extruded above the recrystallization temperature through 90o die for up to four extrusion passes and with area reduction to 75%. The microstructure is characterized by polarized optical microscopy and SEM, and the texture by X-ray diffraction. The results are reported.
