Structure evolution of metals and alloys under deformation in Bridgeman anvils


Stage development of the structure has been established in the study of metals and alloys, in which mainly one of the following structure-forming processes develops upon deformation in Bridgman anvils: work hardening, dynamic recovery, pressure-induced phase transformation, twinning, and dynamic recrystallization. The influence of these processes on the formation of a homogeneous submicrocrystalline structure and the refinement of its elements has been shown.
