    • Abstract


      Changes in the grain size and crystallographic texture during warm working and their influence on the room temperature mechanical properties are investigated on Cd, Zn and a Zn-Al alloy. The yield strength increase in the early stages of working in extruded cadmium is accounted for based on the development of a basal texture while in rolled zinc and zinc alloy, the properties are affected more by the grain size. Cadmium exhibits ductile fracture at all extrusion ratios whereas the fracture mode in zinc and the alloy changes from cleavage at small rolling strains to ductile at higher deformation strains.
