Cast ingots of three Al-Mg alloys, containing 7 Mg, 15 Mg, and 19 Mg, Were obtained from Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation Center for Technology. Billets were machined from these castings and upset forged at .9 of either the solvus or eutectic temperature, as appropriate, to a true strain of 1.5. These alloys were then evaluated by compressive stress-strain testing at various temperatures and strain rates to determine both the ambient and elevated temperature characteristics.
