Warm Formability of AZ31 Magnesium Alloy Sheets under Different Process Conditions
The effect of the process parameters on the sheet formability of AZ31 magnesium alloy has been investigated by means of uniaxial tensile and hemispherical punch tests at different temperatures and strain rates. The results of the uniaxial tensile tests were analysed in terms of flow curves, ductility and microstructural evolution; the constitutive parameters were evaluated and related to the forming limit curves obtained by the hemispherical punch tests carried out at different temperatures and punch speeds.
