Improving the Strength and Ductility of Magnesium Alloys by Grain Refinement and Texture Modification
The room temperature tensile strength and ductility of Mg-3.3%Li alloy were improved simultaneously by two kinds of different equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) treatments. Microstructural analyses showed that grain refinement and texture modification are the principal reasons for the improvement of mechanical properties.
