Abstract

AZ31 is a magnesium alloy possessing good mechanical properties, which makes it particularly attractive for automotive applications. Yet, in order to advance the utilization of this alloy, a broad database of its superplastic behavior is needed. This work presents the results of a comprehensive study on the elevated temperature superplastic behavior of the AZ31 magnesium alloy. Flow stress, fracture strain and strain sensitivity index maps were constructed over a wide range of strain rates, covering temperatures between 325 and 450 °C.
