Article Preview

Mg-3Al-1Zn (AZ31) alloy was caliber rolled at 250, 300, 350, 400 and 450 °C. The effects of caliber rolling temperature on the microstructure and tensile properties were investigated. The room temperature tensile tests were carried out to failure at a strain rate of 1 x 10 -4 s-1. The nature of stress-strain curves obtained was found to vary with the temperature employed in caliber rolling. The yield strength and tensile strength followed a sinusoidal behaviour with increasing caliber rolling temperature but no such trend was noted in ductility. These variations in tensile properties were explained by the varying grain sizes obtained as a function of caliber rolling temperature.
