In situ synchrotron tomographic quantification of granular and intragranular deformation during semi-solid compression of an equiaxed dendritic Al-Cu alloy
Semi-solid deformation mechanisms are important in a range of manufacturing and natural phenomena, which range from squeeze casting to magma flows. Using fast synchrotron X-ray tomography and a bespoke precision thermomechanical rig, we performed a four-dimensional (3-D plus time) quantitative investigation of the granular behaviour of equiaxed dendritic three-phase materials. This methodology produced new insights into the formation of damage during the isothermal semi-solid compression (∼30...Expand abstract
