Effect of Texture on Deformation Behavior of AZ31 Mg Alloy


Article Preview

Hot rolled Mg alloy has a preferred orientation, which affects the deformation behavior of Mg alloy. In this work, load relaxation and tensile tests after hot rolling process were performed to clarify the effect of the texture on deformation behavior of AZ31 Mg alloy and the results were analyzed based on an internal variable theory proposed by one of the authors. The analysis of the deformation behavior is then correlated to XRD pole figure results of the texture. The analysis result of Mg alloy was found to be comparable to the results obtained from the test of Ti alloys, which has the same HCP structure.
