- Materials and Methods 1. Obtaining Alloys
- Results and Discussion
The HT method makes it possible to avoid most of them (in particular, it excludes melting). The structural state and quantitative phase analysis of the TiAl-alloy metal (TA-REM) system synthesized by HT were studied in this work using the Rietveld method and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) [24,25]. The results of the quantitative content of the phases in the studied systems are given in Tables 1–4.
The tables also show the fraction of the calculated integrated intensity (Rwp) in the experimental diffractogram.

Microstructural Analysis of Friction Stir Butt Welded Al-Mg-Sc-Zr Alloy Heavy Gauge Sheets
The upper part of the stirring zone obtained on the 35 mm thick sheet still contains pores and discontinuities. Figure 4a shows the microstructure of sample 4.2 cut from the rear part of the exit hole, as shown in Figure 2. Kinking is also more pronounced in the lower parts of the TMAZ II where the FSW tool-induced metal flow pressure is higher.
The specifics of the TMAZ grain structure modification in the outlet hole area are shown in Figure 8. In the samples from the lower part of the joint (sections 3.5 and 3.6), the grains gradually grow from the stirring zone to the heat-affected zone (Figure 8a). This feature indicates different deformation and recrystallization processes at different distances from the FSW joint surface.
The samples cut off the central sections, with the exception of the section 1.7 sample, had a strength of about 355-365 MPa. Tests in the defect-free zone “S” (Figure 1) areas show that the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of the specimens is around 350–390 MPa (Figure 11b). Excessive adhesion of the plasticized metal to the FSW tool can have detrimental effects on stirring and metal flow efficiency.
In addition, Figure 8a shows that some grain growth can occur near the SZ/TMAZ boundary. In the 30 mm thick sample, a stirring zone with a small lump formed along the entire length of the joint. Alternatively, it may be on the border of the rudder zone in the shoulder-driven region and in the pin-driven region.
The strength of the base metal in the tensile test in the rolling direction is 405 MPa, and 365 MPa in the transverse direction.
Wear of ZhS6U Nickel Superalloy Tool in Friction Stir Processing on Commercially Pure Titanium
This process is similar to friction stir welding and differs only in the absence of a joint line between the two welded parts. Due to the friction between the tool and the workpiece, heating, plasticization and mixing of the material occurred. FSP was performed at constant axial load, which is a preset parameter to maintain metal flow on the tool.
The axial force on the tool during both plunging (Fpl) and processing (Fpr) was maintained at 7848 N, the traverse speed (V) was 180 mm/min, and the tool rotation rate (ω) was 950 rpm. Since the laboratory FSW machine was not attached with a liquid cooling system, unlike industrial machines, the processing was performed in successive 100 mm length passes to avoid overheating the tool. The FSP tool was not cleaned between passes so as not to interfere with the conditions created in the regular FSW process.
Qualitative as well as quantitative analysis of the weld and tool microstructure was performed using an Altami MET-1C metallographic microscope (Altami, St. Petersburg, Russia) and a Microtrac SM 3000 scanning electron microscope (Nikkiso Co. The worn surfaces of the tool were examined using an Olympus LEXT OLS4000 confocal microscope (Olympus, Tokyo, Japan). The tool was also photographed at intervals between passes to document its shape change.
Quasi-static tensile tests of the weld material were performed in a UTC 110M-100 testing machine (Testsystems, Ivanovo, Russia) at room temperature. Microhardness numbers were obtained to evaluate the local hardness in the stir zone and in the base metal.
Results and Discussion 1. Tool Wear
Figure 4 shows typical 3D images of the tool worn surfaces before machining and after traversing 2755 mm. Tungsten is also seen in deposited titanium layers, indicating the dispersion of the tool elements in the transfer layer. The highest wear is observed in the shoulder area at the base of the pin.
Figure 7 shows an SEM image of the axial section of the tool and EDX maps of Ti and tool elements. The maps demonstrate that the main elements of the tool are distributed in the contiguous titanium layer. This is probably due to the fact that titanium-rich layers are removed from the tool immediately during processing.
The shape of the arrays generally tends to be uniaxial after FSP both in the base material and in the tool. The thickness of the adhesive titanium layer on the tool is in the range of 30-80μm, which is consistent with the surface morphology measurements. Figure 9 shows SEM BSE images of the base ZhS6U alloy structure and the tool structure.
Processing quality here refers to the structure of the weld and its mechanical properties. Defect formation during tool wear can be avoided by changing machining parameters, eg, axial load.
Structure and Properties of Al–0.6 wt.%Zr Wire Alloy Manufactured by Direct Drawing of
Electromagnetically Cast Wire Rod
The specific electrical conductivity (EC) of the EMC rod and the cold-rolled strip was determined using the eddy current method with a VE-26NP vortex structure. The electrical resistivity (ER) of the EMC rod and strip was calculated from the EC data. Due to the high solidification rate of the cast ingot, the microstructure of the experimental alloy has a fine structure.
Iron-bearing particles in the form of thin veins were located along the borders of the dendritic cells. Annealing the cast rod at up to 400◦C did not make any visible changes in its microstructure. The hardness of the cold-rolled strip was higher compared to the hardness of the EMC rod (650 vs. 400 MPa).
In a range of 450–500◦C, the hardness of the EMC bar was much higher than that of the strip, but the difference decreased markedly with an increase in the annealing temperature. We assumed that the manufacturability of the as-cast EMC rod during drawing was very good. Figure 5 shows that the ER of the wire and the strip are very close after annealing.
The fracture surface of the experimental wire alloy has a homogeneous ductile pattern with fine dimples after the tensile test (Figure 8a). The size of the pits is significantly larger than the size of the iron-containing particles inside the pits (Figure 8b).
