Paper Title:
Twinning Behavior in AZ31-B Polycrystal Texture Subjected to In-Situ Bending Test
  Abstract

A commercial Mg alloy, AZ31B, has been used widely. In the texture of AZ31B sheet, each grain has its c-axis almost parallel to the sheet normal. Therefore, at the bending process of the sheet, basal slip system can not accommodate an in-plane plastic strain which is perpendicular to the c-axis of each grain. It is known that {10―,12} twin can be formed by applying an extension strain parallel to the c-axis, which is equivalent to the a-axis compression strain. So in the bending deformation of the AZ31B sheet with a texture microstructure, it is expected that {10―,12} twinning occurs. In this study, an in-situ bending test of AZ31B sheet with a texture was conducted under a confocal scanning laser microscope to observe twinning by applying compression stress along a direction almost perpendicular to the c-axis of grains. In addition, EBSD techniques were used for the analysis of crystal orientations. The process of twin development observed by the in-situ bending test can be summarized as follows; with the increase of the deformation strain, the total area of twins increases. However, it is noted that the growth of twins is apparent while the number of twins is almost constant during plastic bending deformmation. EBSD analysis suggested that twinning behavior obey Schmid’s law even in the polycrystal.
