Simulation of precipitation and strengthening in MG-RE alloys

  title={Simulation of precipitation and strengthening in MG-RE alloys},
  author={Hanying Liu},
Magnesium - rare earth (Mg-RE) alloys have received considerable attention in the past decades for wider applications in the aerospace industry due to their relatively high strength and excellent creep resistance. Most rare-earth containing magnesium alloys, such as Mg-Y, Mg-Gd, and Mg-Y-Nd, are precipitation hardenable. A technical barrier to the wider applications of such alloys is the lack of a sufficiently large age hardening response. To further improve this response, an improved… CONTINUE READING
