Microstructural evolution accompanied by localization of plastic flow was studied in compression of a ferritic stainless steel with high stacking fault energy (SFE) at 873 K (≈0.5 Tm). The structure evolution is characterized by the formation of dense dislocation walls at low strains and subsequently of microbands and their clusters at moderate strains, followed by the evolution of fragmented structure inside the clusters of microbands at high strains. The misorientations of the fragmented… CONTINUE READING
