Paper Title:
Preparation and Mechanical Property of Mg-Zn-Y Alloy with a Long Period Ordered Phase
  Abstract

The composition dependence of yield strength and elongation of the Mg-Zn-Y ternary alloy system were investigated. Yield strength was found to increase with the increasing Zn and Y contents, while elongation decreased in Zn- and Y- rich- regions in the system. The composition ratio of Zn to Y, both of which shows large elongation and comparatively high yield strength, was 1:1 in the Mg-rich region of the alloy system. Mg98Zn1Y1, Mg96Zn2Y2, and Mg94Zn3Y3 (at.%) cast alloys exhibited yield strength of 107, 129, and 173 MPa, and elongations of 17, 8, and 12 %, respectively. These alloys consist of Mg-, LPO-, and Mg3Zn3Y2- phases. We also prepared Mg-Zn-Y alloy sheets by hot rolling using cast alloys, and we investigated their microstructure and mechanical properties. The Mg98Zn1Y1, Mg96Zn2Y2, and Mg94Zn3Y3, alloy sheets exhibited yield strength of 276, 319, and 379 MPa, and elongations of 12, 11, and 8 %, respectively. After annealing at 673 K for 3 h, large elongations above 20 % were achieved both of the Mg98Zn1Y1 and Mg96Zn2Y2 alloy sheets.
