The deformation and failure behaviour of a cast AZ91 alloy was investigated using tensile test on the circumferentially notched tensile specimens with different notch radii. The strain and stress triaxiality corresponding to the failure point were estimated. The fracture surface was observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results indicated that deformation and failure of the AZ91 magnesium alloy are very sensitive to constraint level (stress triaxiality). The fracture mechanisms changed from typical ductile tearing to quasi cleavage with increasing constraint level.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
