Academic achievements

1. A special nanostructure with size of 4 nm and hexagonal shape was first discovered in severe plastic deformation Al–Mg–Si aluminum alloy. Appl. Phys. Lett. Reviewers believe that the discovery of the nanostructure is amazing and it is likely to have profound impact on the performance of materials (it has been cited by Mater Sci Eng A and other magazines more than 30 times);

2.   Some special stacking faults and nano twins have been observed in severe plastic deformation Al–Mg aluminum alloy. A new deformation mechanism for stacking faults and twins that exist in fcc ultrafine grains due to partial dislocations emitted from grain boundaries and the corresponding formula model of its critical grain size are proposed (it has been cited by Acta Mater and other magazines more than 60 times);

3.   The dislocation spreading method that stacking faults formed by Shockley partial dislocations obtained by the decomposition of 0 ° pure spiral type and 60 ° mixed full dislocations has been first observed in high pressure torsion Al–Mg alloys. 1/6 <110> Lomer-Cottrell locks formed by the encounter reaction of partial dislocation has been observed as well (it has been cited by Prog Mater Sci and other magazines more than 30 times);

4.   Low-angle and high-angle non-equilibrium grain boundaries, low-angle balanced grain boundaries, Σ9 balanced grain boundaries and twin boundary completely coherent with the matrix were observed in high pressure torsion Al–Mg alloys by HRTEM. The grain refinement mechanism of high-pressure torsion Al-Mg alloy was obtained (it has been cited by Prog Mater Sci and other magazines more than 30 times);

5.   The dynamic precipitation of fine β'' phase with average size of 4 nm and its interaction with dislocations have been found in severe plastic deformation Al-Mg-Si alloy (it has been cited by In. J. Plasticity and other magazines more than 150 times);

6.   The  dislocation expansion method of double edge plane slip and basal dislocation cross-slip to twin edge plane during the creep process of magnesium alloy was observed by TEM first time. The relevant Ph.D. thesis was highly evaluated by the reply committee and was recommended to be the national excellent Ph.D. thesis unanimously (it has been cited more than 50 times by Biomaterials, Mater Chem Phys and other magazines);

7.  Transmission electron microscopy and other systems were used to analyze the microstructure evolution law, dislocation evolution law, the interaction between slip and twinning and the effect of second phase on slipping and twinning during the creep process of heat-resistant magnesium alloys. A method to improve the heat resistance of commonly magnesium alloys was proposed. The research results provide inspiration and reference for further research and application of heat-resistant magnesium alloy.

Applied results

1.   Several nanocrystalline Al–Mg aluminum alloys,average grain size is less than 100 nm and strength is greater than 800 MPa,were prepared by high-pressure torsion.The highest yield strength reached 845 MPa, and its strength has reached the level of super-strong aluminum alloy (authorized patent).

2.   Some kinds of ultrafine-grain 6000-series Al–Mg–Si–(Cu) aluminum alloys with high strength and toughness have been prepared with ECAP. The average grain size is less than 300 nm. The maximum tensile strength, yield strength and uniform elongation are 459 MPa, 433 MPa and 12%, respectively. Its strength has reached the level of high-strength aluminum alloy (patent applied for).

3.   Several Mg-Al-Ca heat-resistant magnesium alloys with excellent room temperature, high temperature strength and high temperature creep resistance have been prepared by Ti microalloying. Relevant authorized patents have been successfully used in the production of high-pressure die-casting parts of heat-resistant magnesium alloy cylinder liners for a advanced racing car of a Japanese company (authorized patent).

4.   Several Mg-Al series magnesium alloys with high strength and high plasticity have been prepared by Ti microalloying. The method has low cost and simple process. The relevant authorized patents have been widely used in the development of high-end rare earth magnesium alloy parts with high-performance such as automobile wheel hub and mast of lunar rover in Shanghai Jiaotong University (authorized patent).
