dc.description.abstractAnisotropic fatigue and cyclic behaviour of AM30 Mg alloy extrusion is investigated by performing fully-reversed strain-controlled tension-compression cyclic tests at strain amplitudes between 0.3% and 2.3%, along extrusion (ED) and transverse (TD) directions. The shapes of half-life hysteresis loops suggest the predominance of slip and twinning/de-twinning mechanisms below and above the strain amplitude of 0.5%, respectively. The twinning/de-twinning occurrence is found to be more extensive during straining along ED, which results in higher asymmetry of hysteresis loops, and thereby, higher induced mean stress. This adversely affects the fatigue resistance and yields to less number of cycles before failure in ED. Optical microscopy and texture analysis are employed to validate the findings. In addition, fracture surfaces are studied by scanning electron microscopy to identify the sources of fatigue crack initiation. Persistent slip bands (PSBs) and twin lamellae interfaces are evidenced as crack initiation sites at low and high strain amplitudes, respectively. Cracks emanated from debonded inclusion interface are also observed. Lastly, estimated fatigue life by Smith-Watson-Topper (SWT) and Jahed-Varvani (JV) fatigue models are compared with experimental life obtained through this study as well as the ones reported in the literature. The JV energy model is proven to yield better life predictions.en
