Texture Evolution in Rolled Mg-13wt%Li-X Alloy


Article Preview

Texture evolution in Mg-13wt%Li-X alloy cold-rolled from 1.35 mm to 0.34 mm thickness was investigated, by obtaining pole figures and orientation distribution functions (ODFs). Punching tests were conducted to reveal the effect of texture nature on formability. It was found that: (1) the textures of the as-received sheet are characterized by α fiber texture, a γ fiber texture and a cubic texture in both cold-rolled and annealed conditions; (2) with thickness reduction though rolling, the intensity of the γ fiber texture continuously increases and finally the γ fiber texture connects into {111} tube texture, the texture of <11 0> orientation flows towards {223}<11 0> along α fiber, the cubic texture of {001}<100> turns into {035}<100>, while some grains concentrate at {011}<41 1> orientation; (3) good punching behavior of the cold-rolled sheet corresponds to the appearance of a well-developed γ fiber texture.
