Microstructure, Texture and Deformation Behavior of Lithium Containing Magnesium Alloys
In the present work the deformation behavior of magnesium alloys with different lithium content has been investigated in terms of microstructures, crystal parameters, textures and mechanical properties. The lattice constants of a phase (hcp) determined by XRD varied with its lithium content and at the same time there are some changes in the texture composition. The plasticity would remarkably increase while b phase (bcc) becomes dominant in the microstructure of alloys.
