The dynamic recrystallisation (DRX) behaviour of magnesium AZ31 is investigated using a plane strain compression (PSC) testing machine at 450°C. The variables included strain rate, double hit including intermittent anneal and double hits with different strain rate at each hit. The alloy shows higher peak stress and strain with increasing strain rates. Predominant basal texture with different intensities are observed at different strain rates. The annealing treatment between double tests leads to strong basal texture. Reversal of strain rate during double hit results in similar flow curves. This shows that in AZ31 alloy, DRX mechanism is independent of the initial microstructure and only depends on the test condition viz. temperature, strain rate and total equivalent strain. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
