Compressing Deformation and Microstructure of AZ61 Magnesium Alloy


Article Preview

Hot compression tests of AZ61 magnesium alloy were performed on gleeble1500D at strain rate ranged in 0.01~1s-1 and deformation temperature 350~400°C.The results show that the flow stress and microstructures strongly depend on the deformation temperature and the strain rate. When the temperature was reduced and the strain rate was enhanced, the area after dynamic recrystallization was enhanced, and the average dynamically recrystallied grain size reduce. But the dynamically recrystallied grain size was not well-proportioned. In this paper the 350°C×1s-1 was suggested.
