Theoretical and Practical Considerations of Grain Refinement of Mg-Al Alloys

Abstract:

Article Preview

The fundamentals of grain refinement are reviewed with particular focus on magnesium alloys. This is followed by considerations of the theoretical and practical aspects of grain refinement of Mg-Al alloys by carbon-based grain refiners. Finally, experimental results using Al4C3 as a potential grain refiner are presented and discussed.
