  • X-ray line profile analysis


Internal friction in nanocrystalline Mg was measured by force vibration method at three frequencies. The specimens were prepared by milling procedure in an inert atmosphere and were subsequently compacted and hot extruded. The linear grain size of specimens used was estimated by X-ray line profile analysis to be about 100 nm. Two developed peaks in the internal friction spectrum were obtained at temperatures ≈ 370 K and ≈ 620 K. Influence of prestraining and annealing was observed. The activation energy of the low temperature peak was estimated to be 1.2 eV and its activation volume VD = 108 b3. The experimental results are analysed and discussed.
