Abstract

Magnesium alloys have poor deformation properties at room temperature, and the application of an electric pulse current during deformation can improve the plastic-forming ability. In this study, the electric pulse rolling of AZ91D magnesium alloy specimens has been examined by changing the pulse output voltage. The results demonstrate that the best surface quality and lowest content (8.4 %) of the β-Mg17Al12 phase are achieved at an output voltage of 300 V. EBSD tests have revealed the lowest weave strength on {0002} and {100} at a pulse output voltage of 300 V, as well as the greatest enhancement of twinning. The maximum tensile strength was 165 MPa at an output voltage of 300 V, with a maximum elongation of 4.1 % at an output voltage of 200 V.
