Abstract: Characteristics of ceramic coatings on AM50 magnesium alloy by micro-arc oxidation in silicate and phosphate electrolytes have been investigated in this study. This study reveals that the thickness of the ceramic coatings increases with the treated time in both electrolytes, the growth rate of ceramic layer in phosphate is faster than that in silicate electrolyte. The surface roughness of the ceramic coating formed in phosphate electrolyte is higher than that formed in silicate electrolyte. The coatings formed in silicate, containing a thicker inner barrier layer and a thinner outer porous layer, consist of MgO, Mg2SiO4 and MgSiO3 phases. For the coatings formed in phosphate, the outer porous layer is thicker than the inner layer, it consist mainly of MgO and MgAlO4 phases.

Abstract: Effect of pulsed high-energy electron beam on the surface modification and the state of surface layer and wear resistance of AZ91 magnesium alloy have been investigated in this study. Optical microscope (OM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were employed to characterize the microstructure and phase composition of the modified surface layer. It was found that the thickness of melted layer on the surface varied with electron beam current and the numbers of pulses, the treated surface layer exhibited higher hardness than AZ91 alloy. The friction coefficient and the wear volume of AZ91 alloy after electron beam treatment decrease markedly. The wear resistance of treated samples were significantly improved, which may be attributed to high hardness as a result of grain refinement.

Abstract: This study is concerned with the effect of high energy ion beam irradiation on surface properties of AZ91 magnesium alloy. The study included a characterization of ion beam surface modification zone in terms of microstructure, and mechanical properties like nanohardness, wear, and corrosion resistance of the surface layer were studied in details. Nanohardness of the modification layer was improved about 2 times as that of the as-received AZ91. The corrosion resistance of the modified layer was significantly improved in NaCl solution because of refined grains. The wear resistance of the modification layer was also improved as compared to as-received AZ91.

Abstract: Surface mechanical attrition treatment, an approach to fabricate nanostructured surface layer on bulk metallic materials has been extensively investigated in the past few years with respect to grain refinement mechanism, friction and wear behavior and the subsequent chemical treatments. The present paper briefly overviews the friction and wear behaviors of the surface nanocrystalline layers generated by SMAT on Cu, steels and Mg alloy with emphasis on reciprocating sliding wear behaviors. The potential applications of the present approach are also prospected.
