High Temperature Properties of Magnesium Die Casting Alloys 920070
The development of magnesium for components which must withstand appreciable loads at elevated temperatures must be accompanied by an expanded material properties database. Tensile, creep and stress relaxation properties are among those particularly needed to provide automotive product engineers with proper information to design in magnesium. This paper provides a compilation to date of property data which are being generated in ongoing research and development programs. Magnesium alloys from the AE and AS series are particularly emphasized.
