Summary

Two primary attempts were made in present investigation. The first is to produce Mg-Al-Mn based (AM60) and Mg-Al-Zn based (AZ31 and AZ91) alloys sheet from cast billet using the DRSR process. Secondly, evaluation of superplasticity and superplastic blow forming were conducted in the as-rolled alloys. Relationship of superplastic characteristics to microstructure features and intense strain produced by DRSR has been discussed, and the favorable rolling procedure to obtain superplasticity in the examined alloys is suggested.
