Evolution of Texture and Mechanical Properties of Pure Mg Processed by ECAP at Room Temperature

Abstract

Equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) was performed on extruded pure Mg, which was clad with a drilled pure Fe coat through an ECAP die to produce a pure Mg sample without obvious cracks at room temperature. After one-pass ECAP, the grain size decreased because of basal slip activation during the dynamic plastic deformation but the microstructure became inhomogeneous. The deformed texture was less scattered and inclined by ~20° from the normal direction toward the extruded direction, and low angle boundaries increased continuously. The mechanical properties decreased slightly as a result of the combined effect from a more refined microstructure and a weaker texture.
