Microstructure Evolution of Nd in Spray Deposited Magnesium Alloy


Article Preview

Subscript text Nd can obviously improve the mechanical properties of spray deposited 1%Nd, 2%Nd extruded and heat treatment alloy. Nd solid solution in α-Mg matrix lead to the hardness of 2%Nd spray deposited magnesium alloy extruded is higher than that of after heat treatment. A large number of Al2Nd particles precipitation is the key factor to the highest hardness value(139.4Hv) in 2%Nd magnesium alloy after 370°C/3h+205°C/24h heat treatment. Moreover, the precipitation of Al2Nd accompany with Al2Ca and Al-Mn phase increased.
