Magnesium alloys are widely used in aerospace and automotive industry due to their low density, good mechanical properties, and good castability. Their main disadvantage is low maximum working temperature (about °C for Mg-Al alloys). This led to the development of Mg-Al-RE or Mg-RE-Zr alloys, which can work up to °C. The chapter will relate to the sand cast and high pressure die cast Cited by: 2. Properties of magnesium alloys reinforced with nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes: A review Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Materials Science 46(2) October with 1, ReadsAuthor: Hajo Dieringa. Book Authors/Editors the wear properties of die cast and sand cast magnesium alloys and aluminum alloys under dry and wet sliding conditions at different loading conditions. to investigate. Correspondingly, the tendency of porosity formation in die cast magnesium alloys during laser welding is the largest, in sand cast it is medium and in wrought magnesium alloys it is the smallest (Fig. ). So, porosity of die cast magnesium alloys in laser welding is a severe problem. 62, 63,

Magnesium wheels are wheels manufactured from alloys which contain mostly magnesium. Magnesium wheels are produced either by casting (metalworking) (where molten metal is introduced into a mold, solidifying within the mold), or by forging (where a prefabricated bar is deformed mechanically). Magnesium has several key properties that make it an attractive base metal for wheels: lightness; a.

The need for light-weight materials, especially in the automobile industry, created renewed interest in innovative applications of magnesium materials. This demand has resulted in increased research and development activity in companies and research institutes in order to achieve an improved property profile and better choice of alloy systems.
Two-thirds of the book is devoted to datasheets for individual alloys which provide a handy quick reference to specific properties and performance. The remainder of the book addresses topics common to all magnesium alloys such as the alloy designation system and product forms. Casting alloys and wrought alloys are compared. For this reason, the mechanical properties in tension and impact of six representative magnesium alloys were tested at four temperatures: , , 76, and 20°K. The six alloys were sheet AZ31B-0, ZE10A-H11 and H10, HM21A-T8, and HK31A-0; sand cast HK31A-T6; and extruded : R. P. Reed, R. P. Mikesell, R. L. Greeson. Optimized Development for Magnesium Castings and Casting Processes – Increase in Value by Applying a Closed Process Chain for the Development of Automotive . A quick and easy to use source for qualified thermal properties of metals and alloys. The data tables are arranged by material hierarchy, with summary tables sorted by property value. Values are given for a range of high and low temperatures. Short technical discussions at the beginning of each chapter are designed to refresh the reader's understanding of the properties and units covered in.
