Production of MAGNESIUM-Alloy Aircraft Parts 400157

THIS paper reviews the progress made and discusses the problems encountered by aircraft manufacturers in the production of airplane parts made from magnesium alloys. Although the procedures instrumental to the use of magnesium alloys are not unduly difficult or complicated, they should be well understood and rigidly followed so that the best results can be obtained from the use of magnesium.
The composition, mechanical properties, and correlations with Government specifications are given in seven tables. Specific recommendations are made on design, pattern construction, chemical surface treatments, machining, assembly protection, and painting. Information also is given on welding, riveting, and forming of sheet and extruded shapes.
