Abstract

Rolling was conducted at 373–673 K for AZ31 Mg alloy; mechanical properties of the rolled Mg alloy were investigated by tensile and blow forming tests. The grain sizes of all the rolled specimens were smaller than that of the specimen prior to rolling. At tensile temperatures under 373 K, the rolled specimens showed much higher 0.2% proof stresses than the non-rolled specimens due to their fine-grained microstructure. However, the strength of the rolled specimens decreased significantly at 473 K. Superplastic behavior was obtained at 573–723 K for the specimens rolled at 498 K. Blow forming tests demonstrated that specimens rolled at 498 K exhibited a high degree of formability at 723 K.
