High Temperature Properties of Mg-Re-Mn Alloy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


A study has been undertaken to reveal the creep, age hardening and mechanical properties of an experimental magnesium alloy, Mg-1.7RE-0.3Mn. The creep study was conducted in a temperature range of 190-210oC and stress levels of 50-60 MPa. A relatively low creep rate has been measured and it was compared to tha commercial magnesium alloys. A high value of activation energy, 240 kj/mol, was calculated. The creep resistance, age hardening mechanical properties and the activation energy of the alloy were discussed and compared to other magnesium alloys.
