Tensile testing of rolled AZ31 alloy with a mean grain size of 80 μm reveals localization and failure prior to diffuse necking. Optical microscopy reveals that failure is caused by voids that have formed within twins. A simple localization criterion is proposed that captures the role of grain size in the effect. Such early failure is only predicted for coarse grain sizes, in line with observation.
