Abstract

The effect of strain rate on the mechanical behaviour of Al-Zn magnesium alloys was examined at room temperature under tensile loading with wide range of strain rate. Quasi static tensile test was performed in four different strain rates to obtain their effect on tensile properties, work hardening rate, strain hardening exponent and strength coefficient using a round shape tensile sample. Two types of Al-Zn magnesium alloys were used in this research study, i.e., AZ31 and AZ61 magnesium alloys. The yield stress and tensile strength of AZ31 were found to be strain rate dependent but not for AZ61. The elongations of AZ31 were approximately about 15% for all strain rate levels but for AZ61 the elongations were slightly decreased with increasing strain rate. For all strain rate levels, the work hardening rate of AZ61 was found to be higher compared to that of AZ31. The strain hardening exponent was decreased with increasing strain rate. In contrast, the strength coefficient was increased with increasing strain rate for both alloys. The change in fracture mode as observed from the fracture surface implies that the fracture mechanisms in AZ31 change as the strain rate increases.
