Using Design of Experiments and Electron Backscatter Diffraction to Model Extended Plasticity Mechanisms In Friction Stir Welded AISI 304L Stainless Steel

Extended plasticity mechanisms (EPM) allow a metal to undergo extended plastic deformation without failure. These mechanisms are responsible for the extended plastic deformation characteristic of hot working processes. In this thesis it is shown that electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) is capabl...
