Texture and Microstructure of Engineering Materials

by | Apr 26, 2018

This Special Section of Advanced Engineering Materials presents reviews and original research on topics related to the texture and microstructure of engineering materials.

A new special section of Advanced Engineering Materials features a selection of the papers presented during the 25th International Materials Research Congress (IMRC), which was held in Cancun, organized by the Sociedad Mexicanade Materiales (SMM) and the Materials Research Society (MRS).

The symposium “Texture and Microstructure” was devoted to topics such as recrystallization, deformation, substructure, unique applications, and data acquisition and processing. Guest-edited by the symposium organizers Francisco Cruz Gandarilla, Raùl Bolmaro, Claude Esling and Stuart Wright, this Special Section compiles eleven articles from the conferences, plus additional articles on related topics.

The Special Section opens with two review papers, one on fine-grained magnesium alloys by SPD, the other on electro-magnetic coupling, followed by a communication on fatigue cracking resistance of bimodal Ti-6Al-4V alloys.

Then, the reader will find 19 full papers covering all measurement techniques, neutron diffraction and time-of-flight neutron diffraction, X-ray diffraction and EBSD, including EBSD coupled with XEDS. The papers cover a broad variety of processing techniques, rolling, wire drawing, hot temperature extrusion, various techniques of severe plastic deformation, e.g. accumulated roll bonding, hot rectangular extrusion, ECASD.

The reader will also find information on heat treatment and on epitaxial deposition of thin films. The materials studied are steel, aluminum composites, titanium alloys, magnesium alloys, and the currently widely studied multi-component alloys in this Special Section.

We are confident that with the papers included in this Special Section and the many references offered in the literature quoted, the reader will find useful information and inspiration for his own research work on “Texture and Microstructure”.
