Evidence for deformation-induced transformations of Cu-rich precipitates in an aged FeCu alloy
- We present experimental evidence that deformation can induce the transformation of small Cu-rich precipitates from the coherent bcc phase to the 9R phase in aged binary FeCu alloys. This is in broad agreement with molecular dynamics simulations of the interaction of dislocations with copper precipitates carried out by Bacon and co-workers [Acta Mater. 50 195/209 (2002); Mater. Sci. Eng. A 400/401 353 (2005); J. Nucl. Mater. 329/333 1233 (2004)].
