Title

Influence of Texture on Mechanical Behavior of Friction-stir-processed Magnesium Alloy

Abstract

Friction stir processing (FSP) improves the mechanical properties of metallic materials. In this study, a magnesium alloy AZ31B was friction stir processed by using single and multiple pass. The friction-stir-processed magnesium alloy exhibits higher tensile strength and ductility in the transverse direction (TD) compared to the longitudinal direction (LD). Both single pass and multiple (two) pass friction-stir-processed material show similar anisotropy in tensile properties, but the multiple pass friction-stir-processed material shows fine-grained microstructure with higher tensile strength and ductility. The tensile anisotropy in the friction-stir-processed AZ31B originated from the textured microstructure that evolved during FSP.
