Relationship between loss-modulus and homologous temperature in superplastic alloys

J Therm Anal Calorim, v. 97, 3 (2009) pp. 891-894. DOI 10.1007/s10973-009-0163-8, 2009.


A study of loss modulus values was conducted for three different metal alloys, in both superplastic and non-superplastic condition, using Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA). Results showed a direct relationship between loss modulus values and the homologous superplastic temperature for each of the three different metal alloys that were studied.
