Formability of Mg-Zn-Zr Based Alloy Sheets at Elevated Temperatures


Article Preview

Mg-3%Zn-0.2%Zr based alloy sheets with various alloying elements additions were fabricated through thermo-mechanical process, and their microstructure and mechanical properties were investigated at room and elevated temperatures. CCV(conical cup value) and V-bend tests were also carried out to evaluate the formability of the fabricated alloy sheets. The experimental results showed that small amounts of Sn or Sr additions could improve the elongation at elevated temperatures, even though the room temperature tensile properties were slightly deteriorated by the Sr addition.
