In this paper, we investigate the influence of sheet thickness on abnormal grain growth and texture development in NbC-added Fe80Al20 alloys (Alfenol) that are being used as sensors. Being able to reduce sensor thickness is found to be an important for parameter for avoiding work-hardening as the sensors deflect. The alloy is rolled to form sheets with a… CONTINUE READING
