Abstract:

A high strength magnesium sheet alloy has been developed, nominal composition of the alloy is 9 percent yttrium, 1 percent zinc, 0.5 percent zirconium, balance magnesium. Some of the shop and service characteristics of the alloy have been determined tensile properties, creep properties, fatigue properties, corrosion resistance in salt water, corrosion resistance when protected by standard magnesium finishing system, weldability and strength of weldments. A high strength magnesium extrusion alloy with the nominal composition of 9.5 percent yttrium, 0.5 percent zirconium, balance magnesium has also been developed. Author
