Summary

The texture formation during cold rolling of AZ31 magnesium wrought alloy has been investigated. Two initial microstructures – 1. rolled and recrystallized, 2. cast – were considered. A typical tilting of maxima by ± 15° in the (0002) pole figures was found to be characteristic for the texture after cold rolling of both examined microstructures. The measured texture evolution and plastic anisotropy (yield stresses and r-values) can be explained by a modified Taylor model assuming activity of the basal, prismatic and <c + a> pyramidal slip systems and of the {0equation image2} <0equation image1> twinning system.
