Isothermal Rolling of Mg-Based Laminated Composites Made by Explosion Cladding
Rolling of Al-Mg-Al tri-layer composite material fabricated by the explosion cladding method was simulated using finite element methods. The rolling temperature was determined based on the flow stresses of AZ31 magnesium alloy and 7075 Al alloy at elevated temperature. The strain distribution in the plates during rolling and effects of the reduction ratio on the separation in the Al/Mg/Al laminate were studied. The simulation agrees with experimental results.
