The high temperature deformation behavior of two-phase intermetallic-based alloys composed of the D022-Al3Ti and A15-Mo 3Al phases is investigated. It is found that the equi-axed two-phase structure formed by an isothermal heat treatment is very stable even after a high-temperature heat treatment and, moreover, the microstructure is retained even after heavy deformation at high temperature. The strain-rate sensitivity m is 0.3 or higher, and a steady state deformation is attained. Compressive deformability is found to be extremely high with the equi-axed two-phase structure. Conversely, a lamellar structure was found to be unstable during deformation. The strain-rate sensitivity m of the specimens with a lamellar structure is almost the same as that of the equi-axed two-phase structure, and the resulting microstructure strongly suggests that the deformation is concentrated at the boundaries between the lamellar colonies, where the equi-axed two-phase structure is formed during deformation by spheroidization.
