Abstract:

A detailed study was undertaken of dissolution and of the various parameters on which it depends. The work reported is a comparative study of solution kinetics of Mg7Zn3 in a dendritic Mg-5.1Zn alloy and a nondendritic grain-refined Mg-5.1Zn-0.6Zr alloy. Dissolution is shown to be faster in a spherical structure than in a dendritic structure of the same alloy solidified at the same cooling rate. Author
