Abstract

The article describes the influence of a new ECAP forming tool draft (helix) for achieve a very fine grained structure of magnesium alloy AZ61. It was realized detailed measurements of hardness (HV) distribution and unconventional micro tensile tests for small samples (M-TT) after the individual passes through deformation route Bc. Effect of ECAP technology on the structure of AZ61 alloy on the optical microscope and electron microscope was measured.

Keywords: ECAP; Magnesium alloy AZ61; Micro tensile test; TEM; EBSD
