Compression of Mg - 0.35Ca - 0.5Zn (wt.%) at 300C - 10-3, 10-2 and 10-1 s-1

The UF team seeks to understand the role of Ca and Zn solutes on the texture evolution in Mg. One of the factors related to solte effects on texture is dynamic strain aging (DSA) which is observed as serrations in compression stress - strain curves at high temperatures. In this case, Mg - 0.35Ca - 0.5Zn compressed at 300C show no serrations at tested parameters, thus no DSA.
