Keywords: AZ80 magnesium alloy | critical damage factor | constitutive model | dynamic recrystallization | strain softening

Quantities AZ80 magnesium alloy billets were compressed with 60 % height reduction on hot process simulator at 473, 523, 573, 623, 673, 723 K under strain rates of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, 1 and 10 s-1. In order to predict the occurrence of surface fracture, the critical damage factor based on the Cockcroft-Latham equation were obtained by analysing the results of the corresponding finite element calculation. The results show that the critical damage factor at 523, 573, 623, 673 K under strain rates of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1 and 1 s-1 is not a constant but varies in a range from 0.1397 to 0.4653. Meanwhile, a constitutive model with a few parameters is used to characterize the dynamic recrystallization strain softening of AZ80 alloy, which comprehensively reflect the effects of the deformation temperature, strain and strain rate on the flow stress.
