The origin of microstructure inhomogeneity in Mg-3Al-1Zn processed by severe plastic deformation

A Mg–3Al–1Zn alloy has been severely deformed by accumulative back extrusion to investigate the effects of processing parameters (temperature and deformation pass) on the microstructure homogeneity. The results indicate that the activation of different grain refinement mechanisms in magnesium may result in an inhomogeneous microstructure, i.e. a bimodal grain size distribution. However, a rapid rate of homogeneity development has been occurred through applying further subsequent passes. This has been justified considering the imposed strain reversal during accumulative back extrusion processing.
