    Abstract

    Tensile deformation and fracture modes in peak-aged cast Mg-11Y-5Gd-2Zn-0.5Zr (wt pct) (WGZ1152) samples at temperatures between 298 K [25 °C, room temperature (RT)] and 623 K (350 °C) (0.33 to 0.69Tm) were studied in situ inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM) using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and slip trace analysis. The ultimate tensile strength (UTS) (265 MPa) and yield strength (YS) (193 MPa) at 523 K (250 °C) were 91 and 80 pct of those at RT, respectively. The observed dominant slip mode transitioned from basal 〈a〉 slip (100 pct) to basal 〈a〉 slip (81 pct) combined with prismatic 〈a〉 slip (12 pct) from RT to 473 K (200 °C). As the temperature increased to 623 K (350 °C), basal 〈a〉 slip (67 pct) and pyramidal 〈c+a〉 slip (25 pct) became the dominant slip modes. The estimated critical resolved shear stress (CRSS) ratio of pyramidal 〈c+a〉 slip/basal 〈a〉 slip (7.3) was lower than that of prismatic 〈a〉 slip/basal 〈a〉 slip (12.7) at temperatures above 573 K (300 °C). Prismatic 〈a〉 slip and pyramidal 〈c+a〉 slip were more active at higher strains for moderate temperatures [473 K to 523 K (200 °C to 250 °C)] and at high temperatures [573 K to 623 K (300 °C to 350 °C)], respectively. A transition in the dominant fracture mode occurred from transgranular cracking (40 pct) combined with intergranular cracking (60 pct) to intergranular cracking as temperatures increased from RT to 623 K (350 °C). The intergranular crack nucleation sites tended to be located at grain boundaries and the interface between the Mg matrix and the large intermetallic grain boundary X phase. Slip bands were associated with transgranular crack nucleation.
