Microstructures and Strength of Hot-Rolled Mg-Zn-Y Alloys

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effects of the hot-rolling process on microstructures and strength were investigated for two kinds of magnesium alloy Mg-Zn-Y and Mg-Zn-Y-Nd. In comparison with the as-cast alloys, the tensile strength of Mg-Zn-Y and Mg-Zn-Y-Nd both increases 45%, whereas their elongation decreases 73%, 60% via hot-rolling process, respectively. The results show that the dynamic recrystallization process and the pining effect of I-phase during hot rolling contribute to the fine-grained structure formation. The hot-rolling process has refined the grain size greatly.
