Dynamic recrystallization behavior during compressive deformation in Mg–Al–Ca–RE alloy

Mg alloys have a high potential for reduction in CO2 emission because of their high specific strength and stiffness . For more applications of Mg alloys, it is desirable to improve creep resistance because Mg alloys often show poor creep resistance. It has been reported that Mg alloys containing Ca showed high creep resistance and elevated temperature strength [2, 3]. Recently, Bohlen et al.  suggested that dynamic recrystallization (DRX) occurred due to particle-stimulated nucleation (PSN). Recrystallization due to PSN tends to occur in metals containing large-sized particles more than 1 μm . Insoluble second phases such as Al2Ca and Mg2Ca are present in Mg–Al–Ca system alloys, so that DRX is expected to be enhanced due to the PSN mechanism in Mg–Al–Ca system alloys. Several studies [6, 7, 8] showed that DRX occurs during hot deformation in Mg–Al–Ca system alloys. However, DRX in Mg–Ca alloys has not been understood sufficiently. In the present paper, compression tests are...
