    Abstract

    The tensile deformation mechanism of a rolled AZ31 alloy at 50 C, 150 C, and 250 C was investigated by a combination of in situ tensile testing, electron backscatter diffraction analysis, and ex situ atomic force microscopy analysis. With increasing temperature, there was a significant difference in the activity of the various deformation modes, along with a decrease in the plastic strain ratio. Extension twinning was only observed at 50 C, while at higher temperatures, a combination of basal and prismatic slip accounted for a large percentage of the observed deformation activity. Prismatic slip was prevalent at all testing temperatures and exhibited increased activity with increasing temperature. The activity of pyramidal âŒ
