Microstructure and Texture Evolution during Large Strain Hot Rolling of AZ31 Mg Alloy
The aims of this study ares to investigate the microstructure evolution of AZ31 Mg alloys with normal rolling and cross rolling during the large strain hot rolling affects microstructure, texture and mechanical properties of AZ31 Mg alloy. In the microstructures of as-rolled both samples, twins are clearly apparent, small and recrystallized grains are visible along some grain boundary and twinned regions. The lankford values of large strain cross rolled sample obviously demostrate the higher average r-value and lower planar anisotropy value. The press formaility of large strain rolled Mg alloy might be improved due to control of texture and grain size by change of the rolling direction.
