Texture and Microstructure of WE54 Alloy after Hot Rolling and Annealing



The texture and microstructure after hot rolling and annealing of WE54 alloy was investigated using X-ray techniques and optical microscopy. WE54 alloy was hot rolled at 400°C to two different reductions (20% and 53%) and then annealed at 450°C for 30 minutes. These treatments resulted in a retained but much weaker basal texture with grain size almost unchanged.
