Paper Title:
Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Cast and Semi-Solid Formed Mg-Al-Zn Alloys
  Abstract

Various Mg-Al-Zn alloys with different Al and Zn contents were fabricated by conventional casting and semi-solid forming process. And the microstructure and mechanical properties of the alloys were investigated. In Mg-4%Al-(5~7)%Zn alloys most of the grain boundary phases were found to be Mg-Al-Zn while in Mg-6%Al or Mg-8%Al based alloys the Mg- Al-Zn phase coexisted with Mg17Al12 at grain boundaries. At room temperature the semi-solid formed alloys showed significantly higher tensile properties, especially elongation, than the conventionally cast alloys.
