Development of extrusion and rolling textures during ECAP of Mg-alloys
AbstractCrystallographic texture includes much information on a material’s behaviour that depends on the processed material itself, the particular thermomechanical processing it has undergone, and the quality of the process. ECAP processed pure Mg and Mg alloys were characterised by their texture and are discussed in terms of texture symmetry. For all types of deformation, including ECAP, the basal plain orientation has to follow certain general rules. Particularly for larger number of passes the ECAP texture can be explained in terms of standard rolling or extrusion textures.
