Si3N4 Nanoparticle Addition to Concentrated Magnesium Alloy AZ81: Enhanced Tensile Ductility and Compressive Strength

Figure 2

Schematic diagram showing texture of monolithic AZ81 and derived nanocomposite based on goniometer X-ray diffraction. In each case, vertical axis (dotted line) is parallel to extrusion direction. Each cell is made up of 2 HCP units having 1 common (0 0 0 2) basal plane. (Prior to tensile/compressive testing).
