Abstract

The effect of the electropulsing on recrystallized microstructure and on texture evolution of a cold rolling (CR) AZ31 strip was studied with the help of light microscopy and X-ray diffraction technique. It was exciting that the completed recrystallization state of sample subjected to the electropulsing treatment (EPT) could be obtained rapidly in ˜7s with the basal texture weakened. The favoring mechanism of static recrystallization (SRX) of MPT could be attributed to the coupled action of the thermal and athermal effects, thereinto, the latter one activated dislocation climb effectively.
