The Influence of the ECAP Temperature on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of a Magnesium Alloy
The influence of the equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) temperature (150-350oC) on microstructure of the AM60 magnesium alloy has been investigated using transmission electron microscopy. It was demonstrated that application of various ECAP regimes leads to significant difference in a grain size and volume fraction of precipitates in investigated material. Thermal stability of precipitates and correlation between microstructure and tensile strength are discussed.
