The paper has presented the results of theoretical studies and experimental tests of the plastic deformation of two-layered Mg/Al specimens. Theoretical studies were carried out using the Forge2011® computer program. Physical modeling, on the other hand, was performed using the Gleeble3800 simulator.Cuboidal specimens with dimensions of 10x15x20 mm and a cladding layer thickness of 1.5 mm were cut off from the sheets obtained in the explosive welding method. The theoretical studies and experimental tests were carried out for the temperature range from 300 to 400°C and for different strain rates. Based on the obtained investigation results it has been found that the main parameters influencing the formability of two-layered Mg/Al materials are temperature and the strain rate.
