${it In situ}$ observation of twinning and detwinning in AZ31 alloy

Gong, W.   ; Zheng, R.*; Harjo, S.   ; Kawasaki, Takuro   ; Aizawa, Kazuya  ; Tsuji, Nobuhiro*

Twinning and detwinning behavior of a commercial AZ31 magnesium alloy during cyclic compression-tension deformation with a total strain amplitude of 4% ($$pm$$2%) was evaluated using the complementary techniques of ${it in situ}$ neutron diffraction, identical area electron backscatter diffraction, and transmission electron microscopy. In-situ neutron diffraction demonstrates that the compressive deformation was dominated by twin nucleation, twin growth, and basal slip, while detwinning dominated the unloading of compressive stresses and subsequent tension stage. A large number of $$<c>$$-component dislocations observed in twins and the detwinned regions were attributed to the dislocation transmutation during the twinning and detwinning. The accumulation of barriers including twin boundaries and various types of dislocations enhanced the interactions of migrating twin boundary with these barriers during twinning and detwinning, which is considered to be the origin for increasing the work hardening rate in cyclic deformation of the AZ31 alloy.
