Paper Title:
Study on Partial Remelting Microstructures and Mechanical Properties of ZK60-RE Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

ZK60-RE is a kind of high strength magnesium alloy. Here, starting materials are casting ZK60-RE magnesium alloy and ZK60-RE magnesium alloy extruded by equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE), reheating to semi-solid state and studied on their partial remelting microstructures by means of microscope. The results show that ZK60-RE magnesium alloy extruded by ECAE are much finer and lead to the formation of spheroids quite rapidly while RE elements modified casting need a little longer time. At the same time, the mechanical properties of two kinds of ZK60-RE magnesium alloys are given. To do that, we want to find better magnesium alloys with high mechanical properties and good thixotropy, which adapt to semi-solid process to form the high quality complex component one time.
