Compression tests are carried out at high-temperature on Thermec-master Z, followed by gas quench. Microstructures after deformation are evaluated using SEM-EBSD. Significant grain refinement occurs by dynamic recrystallization for high temperature and low strain rate (T>1100°C, SR<0.1s-1), and at high strain rate (SR∼10s-1). Dynamic recrystallization is discontinuous and takes place from the grain boundaries, leading to a necklace structure. The nucleation mechanism is most likely to be bulging of grain boundaries. However, recrystallization occurs also by rotation of annealing twins. Thereafter the twin boundaries can bulge as well. The modeling of mechanical behavior gives a fair quantification of flow softening due to dynamic recrystallization indicating the progress of dynamic recrystallization with deformation.
