Paper Title:
Friction Stir Processing: A Novel Approach for Microstructure Refinement of Magnesium Alloys
  Abstract

In this article, recent investigations on magnesium alloys by friction stir processing (FSP) are addressed. It indicates that remarkable grain refinement and breakup/dissolution of second-phase particles could be achieved simultaneously by FSP. High values of superplastic elongation were achieved in the FSP magnesium alloys at a wide range of strain rates and temperatures. The pinning of heat resistant particles on the grain boundaries in Mg-RE alloys stabilized the fine microstructure, leading to the occurrence of superplasticity at higher temperature and higher strain rate.
