It has been examined whether the macroscopic electric resistivity that reflects the microscopic internal structure is applicable as the discrimination method of the change of high-temperature deformation mechanism with the increase of strain-rate in solution-hardened alloys.
When specimens were held at 473 K after introducing dislocations by deformation at room temperature, the resistivity decreased rapidly in a short time, suggesting that the decrease should include the effect of solute atmosphere formation around dislocations.
When specimens were deformed by tension at 573 K with various strain rates and rapidly cooled, the resistivity measured at room temperature and at 77 K depended on the flow stress, and the dependence reversed at the breakaway stress of dislocation from their solute atmospheres. Changes in resistivity are discussed relating to the decrease due to atmosphere formation and the increase due to the increase of dislocation density.
