Experimental and Numerical Study of Cyclic Creep of Cast Magnesium Alloy at High Temperature


Article Preview

The cast magnesium alloys as AM50 offer a good strength, ductility and surface finish for automotive industry. But the poor creep resistance limited its application to power components such as engine and transmission cases at temperatures in excess of 100°C. In order to investigate the cyclic creep behavior of Magnesium Alloy at high temperature, creep tests of plate specimens AM50 were conducted in this work. Based on the analysis about the microstructure and defects of AM50 under the condition of cyclic creep, a cyclic creep constitutive model with isotropic and scalar damage parameter was developed. Furthermore, the proposed model was experimentally verified by analyzing the cyclic creep and recovery response of Cast Magnesium alloy under cyclic loading with dwell time. Comparisons between calculated results and experimental data showed good agreement.
