Mechanical Properties of AM60B Die Castings A Review of the AUTO21 Program on Magnesium Die-Casting 2005-01-0725

This paper provides an overview of the research efforts within the AUTO21 program on magnesium die-casting. The objective of the program is to better understand the mechanical properties of magnesium high pressure die-castings (HPDC) and to develop the capability to predict the local mechanical properties over a given component based on its shape, the design of the mold and the casting parameters used in its production. The paper highlights the research group's findings related to the microstructure and mechanical properties of a full-scale instrument panel beam casting and outlines the goals of the continuing research program.
