Project: Improved ductility by texture conrol in rolled and annealed magnesiumsheet
- project duration
- 01-JAN-03 – 10-JAN-07
- Magnesium sheet material becomes of increasing importance for structural applications because of its very good strenght to density ratio. The thermo-mechanical processing of Mg is severely restricted though, because of the limited ductility of Mg sheet by appropriately designing the alloy composition and applying a process which controls the crystallographic texture.
