High Temperature Deformation Behavior of Strip-Cast AZ31 Mg Alloy


Article Preview

In this study, optimum processing conditions for strip-cast AZ31 Mg alloy was investigated on the basis of processing map and microstructural analysis. To obtain the processing map, isothermal compression tests were carried out to a strain of 0.5 at temperatures of 200 ∼ 400°C with the strain rates of 0.01 ∼ 10s-1. It was found that maximum efficiency indicating the optimum processing condition occurred at 300°C and 10s-1. The possible deformation mechanisms operating at high temperature was also discussed.
