Microstructure and properties of AE42 magnesium alloy and its composite

Kumbhar, Yudhistir (2014) Microstructure and properties of AE42 magnesium alloy and its composite. BTech thesis.



Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) has got so many applications in automotive and aerospace industries due to their high strength. The AE42 magnesium alloy have high creep resistance in the range in a low temperature range and AE42 + 20% saffil that can perform in higher temperature range above 200°C .weight reduction in automotive industries will result in considerable economic advantage. And due to the presence of huge casting in power-train, also the significant mass in front of the vehicle, high temperature magnesium alloys that meets the service requirements of these components which are under investigation. During the course of the study, the amounts of particular phase fractions from the integrated intensity of XRD results have also been calculated . Magnesium is lightest of all metals used as the basis for constructional alloys and due to this property which entices automobile manufacturers to replace denser materials, cast irons , steels and copper base alloys and even aluminum alloys by magnesium based alloys.
