Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) is employed to characterize the microstructure and texture established during the process of warm rolled AZ31 magnesium alloy sheets. The grain size was refined from 17.4 μm to 3.8 μm after 4 pass rolling. Texture of as-rolled sheets was expressed by (0002) basal texture, and the texture intensity was increased with the rolling pass increasing. The mechanical properties of as-rolled sheets were greatly improved by warm rolling.
