The high-temperature deformation behavior of Co-29Cr-6Mo-0.23C-0.14N alloy was investigated by carrying out compression tests; the tests were carried out in the temperature range of 1000-1200°C and strain rates ranging from 0.01 to 30s-1 with a height reduction of approximately 65%. The optimum hot-working conditions were determined from the processing map based on the dynamic materials model. Dynamic recrystallization was observed to occur over the entire temperature and strain rate range. However, uniformly sized grains were formed for strain rates higher than 1 s-1, which is considered to be the optimum hot-working condition. In addition, authors suggested that in extremely low stacking fault energy alloy, explosive and homogeneous formation of mechanical twinning should be considered to be stable state, and new processing map with more detailed description of deformation mechanism seems necessary in future.
