Effects of high shear deformation from equal channel angular pressing-conform on the microstructural and mechanical properties of magnesium alloys
Magnesium (Mg) and magnesium alloys are of great interest in the medical industry due to their high specific strength and biocompatibility. Mg is a hexagonal close-packed (hcp) metal that inherently has limited ductility. Previous work has shown the potential to alter the mechanical properties of Mg with severe plastic deformation (SPD) via equal channel angular pressing (ECAP). This research develops the processing parameters for a continuous method of ECAP, equal channel angular pressing – conform (ECAP-C), to develop an industrially relevant method to produce Mg with enhanced strength and ...
