In wrought Mg alloys, such as AZ31 alloy, a strong basal texture is developed during the rolling process, which leads to a high tension–compression anisotropic behavior at room temperature and irrespective of deformation rate. This classic anisotropy mainly arises due to activation of different deformation modes such as slip versus twin.
