Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties of Mg-8Zn-4Al-xCa Extruded Magnesium Alloy Tube at Elevated Temperature
  Abstract

Microstructures and tensile properties of Mg-8Zn-4Al-xCax=0.6wt.%, 1.0wt.%, 1.3wt.%, named as alloy 1#, 2# and 3# , respectively)extruded magnesium alloy tube were studied at room and elevated temperature. The results show that Ca can increase tensile strength of the alloy at 150 and 200°C significantly. At the temperature of 200°C, alloy 3# achieved optimal tensile properties, of which the ultimate tensile strength, the yield strength and the elongation were 165.8MPa, 108.7Mpa and 41.5% respectively. Compared with the properties of as cast ZAC8506 Magnesium alloy, it is shown that the tensile properties of alloy 3# are much higher than that of ZAC8506 at both room temperature and 150°C. Alloy 3# also gets better tensile performance than AZ91D extruded tube produced in the same way at the temperature of 200°C Mg2Al3 and Ca2Mg5Zn13 phases are found in the microstructure which should contribute to the higher performance of alloy 3# at elevated temperature
