Abstract:

DESCRIPTORS Magnesium alloys, Forging, Mechanical properties, Tensile properties, Determin tion, Fatigue Mechanics, Tests. Following up an investigation of the Mg forging alloy HM21, an investigation of the alloy EK31 has been performed and a limited test program accomplished. The EK31 alloy possesses good forging characteristics. Room temperature yield and ultimate strength values are slightly below those of ZK60. Mechanical properties drop off sharply as temperature increases however, the 600 F ltimate and yield strength is 5 to 10 better than that of HM21. Author
