The effect of magnetic field on plasticity of aluminum alloy has been investigated. 1100 aluminum alloy specimens were tensile tested under different magnetic flux density (B = 0, 150, 1000, 1400, 1800, and 2200 Gauss). The friction stir processed material exhibited higher elongation as compared to the base material. The results show that the magnetic field exerts positive effects on the tensile properties of both the base and friction stir processed alloy. The observed increase of tensile properties are related to the magneto-plasticity effect (MPE), which impacts the motion of dislocations in crystals under magnetic fields. The size and orientation of the grains seem to play a crucial role in the tensile properties under a magnetic field which is also explained using OIM results.
