Abstract: In this paper we review the latest developments in the use of severe plastic deformation (SPD) techniques for enhancement of hydrogen sorption properties of magnesium and magnesium alloys. Main focus will be on two techniques: Equal Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) and Cold Rolling (CR). After a brief description of these two techniques we will discuss their effects on the texture and hydrogen sorption properties of magnesium alloys. In particular, the effect of the processing temperature in ECAP on texture will be demonstrated. We also show that ECAP and CR have produced different textures. Despite the scarcity of experimental results, the investigations up to now indicate that SPD techniques produce metal hydrides with enhanced hydrogen storage properties.
Keywords: magnesium; magnesium alloys; severe plastic deformations; ECAP; Cold Rolling
