The effect of Nb solute and NbC precipitates on dynamic and metadynamic recrystallisation in Ni-30Fe-Nb-C model alloys
Dynamic and metadynamic recrystallisation behaviour of Ni-30Fe-Nb-C model alloys during plane strain compression was investigated by optical and electron microscopy. The dynamically recrystallised grains were primarily located at the pre-existing grain boundaries with few additional new recrystallised grains in the prior grain interior. A limited nucleation of recrystallised grains at >400 nm size NbC particles was also evident. On the other hand, smaller semi-coherent particles (~10–150 nm) severely inhibit the dislocations rearrangement and subgrain boundary mobility, thus leading to sluggish or even suppressed dynamic and metadynamic recrystallisation.
