Effect of n value on formability of Al-Mg alloys Hidetoshi UCHIDA** and Hideo YOSHIDA** n value of Al-Mg alloys is not constant with strain, since it increases to a maximum and decreases. The changes of n value and microstructures during tensile deformation suggest as follows. When n value increases with strain, dislocation density increases. When n value is stable with strain, microstructures change little. When n value decreases with strain, the formation and growth of dislocation cell
