Properties of AZ31 Magnesium Alloys Subjected to Different Extrusion Processes
The AZ31 magnesium alloys were subjected to indirect and direct extrusion processes, respectively, and the properties of the extruded alloys were compared. It was shown that the indirect-extruded alloy has a lower yield asymmetry between tension and compression than the direct-extruded alloy, which is due to a weaker fiber texture in the former.
