A cross-shear deformation for optimizing the strength and ductility of AZ31 magnesium alloys

Abstract

Magnesium alloys have recently attracted great interest due their lightweight and high specific strength. However, because of their hexagonal close-packed structure, they have few active slip systems, resulting in poor ductility and high mechanical anisotropy at room temperature. In the present work, we used a cross-shear deformation imposed by a… (More)
