Abstract

In order to investigate the effect of twinning and detwinning on springback and shift of neutral layer, pre-stretch (PRS) of 3% and 5%, and pre-compression (PRC) of 1%, 3% and 5% along rolling direction was conducted in an AZ31 magnesium alloy sheets at room temperature. 90 V-bending tests were performed at 423 K with various pre-strained samples. The results show that springback increases after both PRS and PRC deformation. The coefficient of neutral layer (k-value) decreases with the increase of the levels of PRS and PRC. After PRS, twinning in an inner compressive region during bending is restrained and tension–compression asymmetry decreased. After PRC, detwinning occurs which implying that it dominates the deformation in the outer tensile region, while in inner compressive region twinning still governs the deformation. Twinning and detwinning leads to a decrease of asymmetry mechanism between the outer and inner layers. The decrease of asymmetry mechanism after PRT and PRC results in a drop of the neutral layer offset.
