Fundamentals of magnesium alloy metallurgy



Magnesium is finding a wide range of applications, due to its strength and low weight. As a result, there has been a wealth of research on understanding magnesium’s properties and how they can be controlled during processing. Edited by leading experts in the field, this book reviews key properties and how they affect alloy design and processing of magnesium alloys. Beginning with an introduction to the primary production of magnesium, the book goes on to discuss physical metallurgy of magnesium and thermodynamic properties of magnesium alloys. Further chapters focus on understanding precipitation processes of magnesium alloys, alloying behavior of magnesium, alloy design and the formation, corrosion and surface finishing of magnesium and its alloys. The conclusion explores applications across a range of fields, such as aerospace, automotive and medical.
