Texture Development in Pure Mg and Mg Alloy AZ31
Texture evolution in pure Mg and Mg alloy AZ31 during deformation and annealing was investigated. The poor low temperature ductility can be attributed to both, insufficient shear systems and unfavorable deformation geometry. Static recrystallization was shown to proceed discontinuously despite little texture change. High temperature deformation was accompanied by dynamic recrystallization with similar texture development as during static recrystallization.
