Deformation of superplastic metals during friction stir microforming
Keywords and Phrases
"The microfabrication method known as friction stir microforming is examined to gain a better understanding of the metallurgical aspects of the process. Series of experiments were performed to study the effect of machine parameters on the percent replication of mold features and mechanical properties of processed components. Statistical analysis of the experimental results was performed, and equations developed to relate the machine parameters to chosen mechanical properties and physical characteristics. An empirical relationship was also developed to model the microstructural evolution during friction stir microforming, and two models were created to relate machine parameters to the temperatures and forces observed during processing"--Abstract, leaf iii.
