Effects of Strain Rate and Heat Treatment on the Tensile Property of 1Mn1Zn4Y Magnesium Alloy
In this paper, the effect of heat treatment and strain rate on the tensile property of extruding magnesium alloys 1Mn1Zn4Y is studied by using tensile tests. It can be concluded that because the grain size of the sample with solid solution (T4) is coarser than that of the sample without heat treatment，the elongation and the strength of the specimen treated with solid solution are lower. However, owing to many fine and dispersed particles of the second phase precipitated from the solid solution, the strength of sample treated with solid solution + aging (T6) is the highest.
