Abstract: In this paper, Mg-Li alloy anodic oxide films were prepared with different amino acid as additive. The microstructure and phase composition of the coatings were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD), respectively. The corrosion resistance was evaluated by potentiodynamic polarization techniques and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results show that the main compositions of the anodic oxide films are MgO, Mg(OH)2 and LiOH. The anodic oxide films with amino acid as additive have uniformer surface and higher corrosion resistance than that without additive, but with the increase of the carbon chain of amino acid, the effect is reduced gradually.

Abstract: This work mainly studied the effects of hot extrusion on microstructure, texture and mechanical properties of Mg-5Li-3Al-2Zn alloy. The results show that the microstructures of as-cast and as-extruded alloys both consist of α-Mg matrix and lamellar eutectic structure (α-Mg and AlLi phases). During the hot extrusion, the large eutectic structure of as-cast alloy was crushed into small eutectic structure and the grains were effectively refined. A {0002} basal texture was formed after hot extrusion. The as-extruded alloy exhibits remarkably improved tensile properties, which is mainly attributed to the grain refinement and the formation of texture.

Abstract: In this paper, the high temperature tensile properties of the LAZ532-2RE alloy prepared by hot extruded processing after vacuum casting was investaged. The tensile properties of the extruded LAZ532-2RE alloy specimens were tested at different temperature with different strain rate. The microstructures near the fractured surfaces were observed using microscope in order to investigate the dominant deformation mechanism. The activation energy was calculated to explain the high temperature deformation mechanism. The result indicated that the strength of LAZ532-2RE alloy was high at the temperature range from 398K to 423K. Meanwhile, the fracture elongation of the alloy reaches 121% at 523K under strain rate 1×10-3s-1.

Abstract: In the present work the deformation behavior of magnesium alloys with different lithium content has been investigated in terms of microstructures, crystal parameters, textures and mechanical properties. The lattice constants of a phase (hcp) determined by XRD varied with its lithium content and at the same time there are some changes in the texture composition. The plasticity would remarkably increase while b phase (bcc) becomes dominant in the microstructure of alloys.

Abstract: Magnesium alloys and very light metals that can be used for structural application. A variety of Mg-Li-Zn alloys including Mg-11%Li-1%Zn, Mg-9%Li-1%Zn, Mg-9%Li-1%Zn-0.2%Mn, Mg-9%Li-1%Zn-1%Al-0.2%Mn and Mg-9%Li-3%Al-1%Zn-0.2%Mn were processed by equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) to see how effective is this process in refining the grain structure. After 4 passes of the ECAE process, TEM studied the microstructural diversifications, especially showing the existence of compounds, MgLiZn, MgZn2 and ZnO. The room temperature and high temperature mechanical properties were also investigated. After the ECAE process, the room temperature strength was found enhanced at a modest cost of reduction in elongation.

Abstract: This work examined the effects of Li content on the strain-hardening behaviors of three varieties of Mg−Li−Zn alloys containing approximately 6 wt%, 9 wt%, and 10 wt% of Li. Tensile tests were carried out on specimens in the directions of 0, 45 and 90° to the rolling direction. Kocks–Mecking type plots were constructed to illustrate different stages of strain-hardening. The cold-rolled Mg−6Li−1Zn (designated as LZ61) alloy sheet showed stage II and stage III strain-hardening behaviors at room temperature. The specimens of Mg−9Li−1Zn (designated as LZ91) and Mg−10Li−1Zn (designated as LZ101) alloy sheets did not show stage II strain-hardening. Higher initial strain-hardening rates were observed in the 90° direction for these alloys as a result of the cold-rolled fibrous structure affording stronger barriers to dislocation movements in this direction.

Abstract: Texture evolution in Mg-13wt%Li-X alloy cold-rolled from 1.35 mm to 0.34 mm thickness was investigated, by obtaining pole figures and orientation distribution functions (ODFs). Punching tests were conducted to reveal the effect of texture nature on formability. It was found that: (1) the textures of the as-received sheet are characterized by α fiber texture, a γ fiber texture and a cubic texture in both cold-rolled and annealed conditions; (2) with thickness reduction though rolling, the intensity of the γ fiber texture continuously increases and finally the γ fiber texture connects into {111} tube texture, the texture of <11 0> orientation flows towards {223}<11 0> along α fiber, the cubic texture of {001}<100> turns into {035}<100>, while some grains concentrate at {011}<41 1> orientation; (3) good punching behavior of the cold-rolled sheet corresponds to the appearance of a well-developed γ fiber texture.
