Paper Title:
The Relation between Microstructure and Corrosion Behavior of New Mg-Al-X Alloys for Transportation Application
  Abstract

New die cast magnesium alloys have increasingly been developed in recent years for the automotive industry due to their high potential as structural materials for low density and high strength/weight ratio demands. However, their poor mechanical properties and low corrosion resistance have led to a search for new kinds of magnesium alloys with better strength, ductility, high temperature behaviour and high corrosion resistance. The main objective of this research is to investigate the corrosion behaviour of new die cast magnesium alloys: Mg-Al-Ca, Mg-Al-Sr. AC and DC polarization tests were carried out on the new alloys. Microstructure was examined using optical and electron microscopy (SEM) and EDS. The additions of Sr and Ca affected the corrosion behaviour. These results can be explained by the effects of alloying elements on the microstructure of Mg alloys such as grain size and precipitates caused by the change in precipitation.
