The effect of zinc content on the processing map for hot deformation of β brass has been studied in the temperature range 550-800°C and strain rate range $0.001-100 s^{-1}$ in brasses containing 44, 47, 51 wt.% Zn. The three types of β brass exhibit superplastic deformation at temperatures of 550-800°C, &les;750°C, and 700-800°C, respectively, and at strain rates of$ <1s^{-1}$. In the 47% Zn β brass, superplasticity is curtailed at 800°C owing to abnormal grain growth caused by anomalous diffusion. In all three β brasses, superplastic deformation is dependent on the diffusion coefficient. At temperatures less than 700°C and in the strain rate range $0.01-1s^{-1}$, the 51% Zn β brass exhibits a domain of dynamic recrystallisation caused by the presence of γ phase particles in the matrix. At higher strain rates ($10 and 100 s^-1$), the brasses become microstructurally unstable, which is manifested by oscillations in the stress-strain curves and by adiabatic shear bands and strain markings in the micrographs.
