Abstract

In recent years special attention has been concentrated on Mg alloys as the lightest structural metal. However, their insufficient corrosion resistance and creep resistance limit Mg alloys application in automotive and aerospace industry. Until now these problems have been treated in many works separately, as corrosion behavior in non-stressed state and creep in non-corrosive conditions. However, under real operational and environmental conditions mechanical and corrosion processes occur simultaneously, accelerating each other. This inevitably leads to the appearance of new synergistic effects that significantly reduce the lifetime of metals.
