Magnesium Alloys in Aircraft Seats - Engineering Design and Fabrication Recommended Practices
This document is a guide to the application of magnesium alloys to aircraft interior components including but not limited to aircraft seats. It provides background information on magnesium, its alloys and readily available forms such as extrusions and plate. It also contains guidelines for “enabling technologies” for the application of magnesium to engineering solutions including: machining, joining, forming, cutting, surface treatment, flammability issues, and designing from aluminum to magnesium.
Rationale: This document is a guide to the application of magnesium alloys in aircraft seats. This document acts as a guide to support this technology by providing design engineers and project managers with guidelines for the appropriate use of magnesium alloys, advice of fabrication techniques that are unique to magnesium and an overview of the available forms of the material.
