Microstructure and mechanical properties of squeeze cast and semi-solid cast Mg-Al alloys

Magnesium-aluminium castings produced by means of squeeze casting, new rheocasting and thixocasting have been investigated. These casting processes provide very different microstructures consisting of a-Mg and b-Mg17Al12. The shape and distribution of the brittle b-Mg17Al12 has a large influence on mechanical properties. Isolated particles of b-phase in squeeze cast components are less detrimental to ductility […]
