Abstract

In the present paper, inhomogeneities in the microstructure and mechanical properties of a modified AZ80 plate under industrial production conditions were investigated. The results indicated that the microstructure of the edge and middle region shows more homogeneous and fine recrystallized grains. Additionally, more coarse recrystallized grains existed between the edge and the middle region. The ultimate tensile strength and yield strength of the edge region of the plate are maximal (287 and 162 MPa), and those near the 1/8 W region are minimal (259 and 152 MPa). The grain size increased from 19.5 to 27.2 μm along the center layer to the surface layer. The ultimate tensile stress (yield stress) increases from 258 (121 MPa) to 284 MPa (176 MPa) in the direction from the surface layer to the middle layer. The microhardness decreased from the surface layer (72HV) to the center layer (64HV). The metal strain state and temperature distribution lead to different degrees of dynamic recrystallization, which causes the microstructure and mechanical properties of the plate.
