Paper Title:
Study to Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Mg Containing High Entropy Alloys
  Abstract

In this paper, alloys with compositions of Mgx(MnAlZnCu)100-x (x: atomic percentage; x=20, 33, 43, 45.6 and 50 respectively) were designed by using the strategy of equiatomic ratio and high entropy of mixing. Microstructure and mechanical properties of the new high entropy alloy were studied. The alloys were prepared by induction melting and then were cast in a copper mold in air. The alloy samples were examined by microhardness tester, XRD, SEM, thermal analyzer and testing machine for material strength. Alloys were composed mainly of h.c.p phase and Al-Mn icosahedral quasicrystal phases. The alloys exhibited moderate densities which were from 4.29g•cm-3 to 2.20g•cm-3, high hardness (429HV-178HV) and high compression strength (500MPa-400MPa) at room temperature. The extensibility was increased with Mg from 20at% (atomic percentage) to 50at%.
