The stress relaxation method has been applied to the nickel-based alloy 80A to predict meta-dynamic (MDRX) and static recrystallization (SRX) kinetics. Compression tests were performed on a Gleeble 3800 system atr different temperatures (950-1200°C). The strain rate was varied in the case of MDRX and the pre-strain in the case of SRX. To investigate MDRX, the prestrain was set to twice the peak strain in order to reach steady state before holding. To focus on the interaction of MDRX and SRX, the pre-strain was set to the peak strain, where dynamic recrystallization (DRX) starts but does not yet reach steady state. Avrami type equations for the prediction of both the MDRX and SRX were adapted to feed a semi-empirical grain structure model.
