Fine grained magnesium alloy AZ31 sheets were submitted to the accumulative roll bonding (ARB). After ARB, the microstructure of samples was refined, and the sheets exhibited pronounced texture. The amplitude-dependent internal friction (ADIF) was measured at room temperature. Microstructure changes as the increased dislocation density, grain size refinement, twins, and texture influenced the ADIF. A significant anisotropy of the properties was observed. Experimental results are discussed on the base of physical mechanisms responsible for internal friction.

Key words: magnesium alloy, accumulative roll bonding, internal friction, dislocations, twinning, texture.
