Bulk and local textures of pure magnesium processed by rotary swaging


Rotary swaging processing on commercial as-cast pure Mg has been carried out. Bulk texture variation with the processing passes was investigated using large gauge volume by neutron diffraction, of which results showed a combination of different components such as {00.2} basal fibre and two weak {10.0} and {11.0} fibres. Asymmetric distribution of the basal fibre around swaging direction was observed and being related to the processing parameters. Texture gradient analysis by synchrotron radiation demonstrates a non-uniform deformation of the RS processed pure Mg from surface to the centre.
