The effect of corrosion and stress, known as corrosion creep on viscoelasticity of magnesium alloys was studied. Scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy were used for the analysis of creep cracks. The alloy with highest aluminum content was found to have the highest sensitivity to creep in a corrosive environment. Creep lifetime of alloys in wet medium was observed to be shorter than in air.
