Paper Title:
TEM Study of a Creep-Resistant Mg-5Al-2Sr Alloy after Semisolid Molding
  Abstract

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used to assess the microstructural changes accompanying semisolid molding of a creep resistant Mg-5%Al-2%Sr alloy. It was revealed that the processing created thixotropic morphologies with globular solids of α-Mg, having well-developed sub-structures. The quickly-solidified liquid fraction, enriched in Al and Sr, led to the formation of increased volumes of a lamellae type Al4Sr phase, surrounding the secondary α-Mg. Traces of Mg17Al12 still existed, predominantly as irregular shape compounds located mainly in grain interiors. Both the primary solid and high melting point precipitates of Mn-Al modified with Sr, acted as nucleation substrates for secondary α-Mg grains.
