Cavitation in a Superplastic Al-Zn-Mg Alloy

David A. Miller* and Terence G. Langdon**

Under creep conditions, cavity growth may be controlled by vacancy diffusion or power-law creep. These two growth mechanisms are examined with reference to a superplastic Al-Zn-Mg alloy, and it is shown that the predicted dominance of power-law growth is consistent with earlier experimental observations of cavitation in this material.
