Abstract

Investigations are conducted of the recrystallization behavior of pure tungsten through different thickness reductions by isothermal annealing at 1350 °C. Concise description is made of the recrystallization kinetics by the Johnson-Mehl-Avrami-Kolmogorov (JMAK) model in combination with hardness test results. The rate of the recrystallization process increases with the deformation ratio. For further investigations, three boundary maps of tungsten plates which are of different thickness reductions by rolling and in full recrystallization are obtained, each covering an area of 1.15 × 1.05 mm2 on the transversal section comprising the rolling direction (RD) and the normal direction (ND). The average grain size and its distribution of pure tungsten can be easily calculated, and hence the grain aspect ratios of pure tungsten.
