Some magnesium alloys have been developed in the past several years to meet the needs of structural applications. The most common die casting alloy is still AZ91D with 9 % aluminum content. However, many structural applications require an appreciable amount of energy absorption during their operation. Therefore, magnesium alloys having lower aluminum content, for example, AM50 (5 % Al) were found to be more ductile, especially during impact situation. Thus, it was essential to study corrosion fatigue of magnesium die-cast alloys and to investigate the correlation of corrosion fatigue resistance with the mechanochemical behavior of these promising alloys.
