Summary

Mg and Mg alloys are of increasing technical importance. This requires, for instance, an improved quantitative knowledge of the structure-process and the structure-property interrelations occurring in the plastic deformation of these materials. In order to solve the problem especially the reliable quantitative determination of physically realistic substructure parameters (e.g. dislocation densities) is necessary. The present work illustrates that the analysis of X-ray diffraction line broadening is an efficient tool for this purpose.
