The influence of microstructure evolution on the low-temperature superplasticity of ultrafine Ti-6Al-4V was established. For this purpose, the static and dynamic coarsening response and plastic-flow behavior of the alloy with a mean size of alpha (sub)grains and beta particles of 0.1-0.4 mu m were determined via a series of tension tests at temperatures between 450 and 700 degrees C. Both static and dynamic coarsening exhibited diffusion-controlled (r(3)-vs-time) kinetics. However, dynamic coarsening was approximately two orders of magnitude faster than the corresponding static behaviors due to enhanced diffusion through the deformed beta matrix. A total elongation of 1000% and strain-rate-sensitivity exponent m = 0.48 were obtained at 550 degrees C and 2 x 10(-4) s(-1). Very limited cavitation was observed in the specimens after superplastic deformation under optimal conditions. (C) 2016 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
