The high-temperature flow behavior of TB8 titanium alloys with two different grain sizes was investigated in this present work. Results show that a significant characteristic of stress drop is visible at the start stage of the hot deformation process when the strain rates are 100 and 10−1 s−1. With the further increasing of strain, the flow stress initially rises to a maximum value and subsequently attains a plateau for the strain rates of 100 s−1 and a slight decrease for the strain rates of 10−1 s−1. Only dynamic recovery occurs under these deformation conditions. When the strain rates drop to 10−3 s−1, the dynamic recrystallization takes place during hot deformation. The values of deformation activation energy and materials constants at different strains were calculated. The processing maps at different strains were established for the fine- and coarse-grained alloys. The optimal processing parameter for hot processing was attained to be 900 °C/10−3 s−1 for fine-grained alloys and 950 °C/10−3 s−1 for coarse-grained alloys, respectively. View Full-Text
