Summary

The twenty-first century has been declared the century of magnesium [1]. It is well known that the mechanical properties of pure magnesium can be substantially improved by alloying or mechanical treatment. As a result of its hexagonal structure mechanical deformability of the pure metal is very limited. The object of this work was to examine experimentally the effect of the stress state on the ductility of pure magnesium and in particular the effect of hydrostatic pressure on deformability.
