Samples of rolled commercial AZ31 magnesium were stretched along RD and in situ X-ray measurements were performed. The macroscopic stress-strain curves were examined in order to find basic mechanical material parameters. The lattice strains for different hkl reflections were determined as a function of the applied tensile stress. The obtained experimental results were compared with the predictions of the elasto-plastic self-consistent model. It was found that mainly slip systems are responsible for the observed material deformation and their critical resolved shear stresses (CRSS) were evaluated.
