Magnesium alloys, as well as composites based on magnesium alloys, still have great potential for improving mechanical and physical properties. An example is age-hardened magnesium alloys, in which the strength level is still lower that that obtained in aluminum alloys. method depends upon many factors, e.g. the number of castings required, the properties required, dimensions and shape of the part and the castability of the alloy. Nevertheless, there is a need to develop conventional techniques further and also develop new techniques. At present, the use of pressure die cast alloys is increasing rapidly (Fig. 4).

Magnesium-base products are available in a wide range of mechanical properties. As with metal manufactures in general, the tensile and other properties of the magnesium materials depend upon the composition, condition (whether cast or wrought), details of fabrication, heat treatment, and other factors.

Introduction to Magnesium Alloys CHAPTER 1 MAGNESIUM is the lightest common struc-tural metal with a density of g/cm 3 in its solid state. The data in this collection focus on mechanical and physical properties of magne-sium that are relevant to engineers in the design of lightweight components and structures.

Other. Kaibyshev, in Advances in Wrought Magnesium Alloys, Introduction. Magnesium alloys exhibit poor workability at ambient temperature due to the fact that basal slip and twinning are dominant deformation mechanisms. As a result, elongation-to-failure of low alloy magnesium at room temperature usually does not exceed 15% (Pérez-Prado et al.,Sakai and Miura, ).

This alloy is typically used for power-train and mechanical components where toughness is more important than deformation capability.

AM60B: Commonly used for automotive die castings for safety components such as instrument panel structures and seat frames. This alloy offers excellent ductility, energy absorbing properties, strength and. The factors that affect the mechanical properties of metal are varied.

For instance, yield strength, hardness, the ductile-brittle transition temperature, and susceptibility to environmental conditions are all affected and can be improved, by altering the grain size. Here, you can learn about the various types of magnesium alloys and their designations, the physical properties of magnesium alloys, and the applications in which magnesium alloys are used.

Types and designation. Magnesium alloys can be categorized into two groups: cast alloys and wrought alloys. Magnesium alloy die castings provide opportunities for designing low weight, cost efficient solutions based upon a fully recyclable material. These incentives are highly attractive for the automotive industry.
