Abstract: New bimetal magnesium/aluminium macrocomposites containing millimeter-scale Al based core reinforcement were fabricated using solidification...

Authors: Matthew R. Barnett

Abstract: It is shown that wrought magnesium alloys display a number of significant types of deformation inhomogeneities. These are influenced by the...

Abstract: The suitability of a twin-roll cast (TRC) age-hardenable alloy for wrought applications is explored. A Mg-4Zn (wt.%) alloy, 3mm thick, was...

Authors: Nicole Stanford

Abstract: The magnesium alloy AZ31 was processed by severe hot rolling and annealing. This processing was optimised to produce recrystallised grain...

Authors: David Jenista

Abstract: The use of two-piece billets in aluminium extrusion is often viewed as a necessary evil. A heating system that provides two-piece billets...

Authors: Jung Woo Choi, Kwang Seon Shin

Abstract: The mechanical properties of extruded ZA (Mg-Zn-Al) alloys with different Al contents were examined. The effects of Al on deformation...
