Paper Title:
Low Cycle Fatigue Behavior of As-Extruded AZ31 Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

The investigation on fatigue behavior and fracture surfaces of fatigued specimens of as-extruded AZ31 magnesium alloy can provide a reliable theoretical foundation for both fatigue resistant design and reasonable application of magnesium alloys. Through total-strain-amplitude controlled fatigue tests and analysis on fracture surfaces of fatigued specimens, the behavior of cyclic stress response and fatigue life as well as fracture mechanism were identified for as-extruded AZ31 magnesium alloy. The experimental results show that the extruded AZ31 alloy exhibits significant cyclic strain hardening, the relation between elastic strain amplitude, plastic strain amplitude and reversals to failure can be described by Basquin and Coffin-Manson equations respectively. In addition, it has been found that fatigue cracks initiate and propagate in a transgranular mode.
