Wrought Magnesium Alloys and Manufacturing Processes for Automotive Applications 2005-01-0734

In this paper, the mechanical properties, structural performance and mass saving potential of wrought magnesium alloys are compared to several major automotive materials: mild steel, advanced high-strength steel, cast and wrought aluminum, cast magnesium, plastics and fiber-reinforced composites. Manufacturing processes including welding and joining of magnesium extrusions and sheet products are critically reviewed. The current and potential applications of wrought magnesium alloys in automotive interior, body and chassis areas are discussed. Technical challenges and research opportunities for these applications are identified.
