Abstract


  • Accumulative roll bonding (ARB) is an effective method to produce ultrafine-grained (UFG) sheet materials with high strength. In this work, fully annealed AA1050 sheet with an initial thickness of 1.5. mm was processed by ARB up to five cycles. The microstructure was examined by optical microscopy (OM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results revealed that ARB is a promising process for fabricating ultrafine grained structures in aluminium sheets and the average grain size after 5-cycle ARB reached approximately 300. nm. Meanwhile, a remarkable enhancement in the strength was achieved and the value was about three times the strength of starting material. The microstructure at the bond interface introduced during ARB was investigated and its influence was discussed in detail. In addition, the microstructure and mechanical properties after ARB were compared with that after deformation by equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) up to the same strain. It has been found that ARB is more efficient in grain refinement and strengthening, which can be attributed to the different deformation modes of the two techniques.
