Effect of Annealing Process on Mechanical Properties and Texture Changes of AZ31 Mg Alloy Sheets
Mg alloy sheets exhibit the yield strength of 280 MPa and elongation of 18 % by rolling at 423 K. Elongation of Mg alloy sheets was improved up to 35 % when the sample was annealed at 673 K for 10 min. From the observation of microstructure, recrystallization and grain growth have happened during annealing processes. The intensity of 0002 pole figure increases slightly as a function of annealing temperature.
