Article Preview

Uni-axial tensile plastic deformation behavior of rolled magnesium alloy AZ31B under the temperature range from room temperature(RT) to 250°C with strain rates between 10-3 and 10-1s-1 has been systematically investigated. Microstructure evolution and texture were determined using optical microscopy (OM) and electron back-scattered diffraction (EBSD) techniques, respectively. Our results indicated that the strength and elongation-to-fracture were more sensitive to strain rates at elevated temperature rather than that at room temperature; dynamic recrystallization (DRX) and relaxation of stress at elevated temperature resulted in dramatic change of mechanical properties. Compared with strain rate, the temperature played a more important role in ductility of AZ31B Mg alloy sheet.
