Abstract: By means of XRD, SEM, FE-SEM, and TEM, the microstructures and growth morphology features of icosahedral quasicrystal for rapidly solidified Mg-Al-Zn system were investigated. It was found that, single icosahedral quasicrystal can be obtained in the Mg-Al-Zn alloys. The icosahedral quasicrystal reveals three typical morphologies: well developed dendrites, coral-like, and petal-like, and its compositions are in a wide range composition with 42.87-48.89 at.%Mg, 13.78-17.03 at.%Al, and 34.22-40.60 at.%Zn. Pentagonal dodecahedron with icosahedral symmetries is seen, and certain steps in pentagonal faces suggest that the planar growth occurs on the pentagonal faces.

Abstract: Small amounts of minor alloying elements such as RE and Sr were added to Mg- 8wt%Al-5wt%Zn (AZ91D+4%Zn), and their effects on the microstructure, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance were investigated. The microstucture of the investigated alloys could be characterized by dendritic Mg, Mg17Al12, a quasi-crystalline Zn-rich phase, and Al4RE (if RE is added). Although the tensile strength of alloys was not improved, the creep strength was significantly enhanced by the additions of minor alloying elements. No apparent influence of the additions could be found on the corrosion resistance.

Abstract: Both Al-Zn alloy and Mg-Al-Zn alloy have been considered as high damping and light materials. For practical use, this study investigated the effects of the structure and the composition on the vibration fracture characteristics of the Al-xZn alloy and the Mg-xAl-Zn alloy under resonance. For Al-xZn (x=7, 11, 49, 83wt%) alloys, under both constant force and initial-deflection conditions, the 7Zn showed the greatest vibration life. For Mg-xAl-Zn (x=3, 6, 9wt%) alloys, experimental results indicate that the AZ31-F as-extruded samples showed a greater vibration life, while high Al fully-annealed samples (AZ91-O) had greater vibration fracture resistance under constant force conditions.
