Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Alloy development work is now underway therefore as part of an international project the structure, composition and initial interim results of which have already been described [1]. The goals of this project can be defined as follows using conventional alloys as the terms of reference:
a) Room temperature properties at least as good as AZ91;
b) Strength above 120 °C better than AZ91;
c) Minimal creep rate better than AE42,
d) Castability similar to AZ91;
e) Corrosion similar to AZ91;
f) Costs similar to AZ91 (no more than 20 % higher).
