The yield point produced by unloading and reloading during tension was observed in a twin-roll-cast Mg-3Al-1Zn alloy. The magnitude of the unloading yield drop increased with increasing strain. Repeated stress relaxation tests were performed to quantitatively analyse the evolution of mobile dislocation density at 20-and 150 degrees C. The exhaustion rate of mobile dislocations at 20 degrees C is 11 times higher than that at 150 degrees C, and is considered to be responsible for the unloading yield effect at 20 degrees C.
