Advances in Wrought Magnesium Alloys: Properties, Processing and Applicationsby Colleen Bettles
Synopses & Reviews
Wrought magnesium alloys are alloys that have been mechanically worked after casting. Wrought alloys possess higher strength and ductility than cast alloys and allow the use of magnesium alloys in a wider range of applications. This important book summarizes the wealth of recent research on the understanding of process-property relationships in wrought magnesium alloys and how this understanding can be used to develop a new generation of alloys for high-performance applications. After an introductory overview of current developments in wrought magnesium alloys, part one reviews fundamental aspects of deformation behavior. These chapters are the building blocks for the optimization of processing steps discussed in part two, which explores casting, extrusion, rolling and forging technologies. The concluding chapters cover applications of wrought magnesium alloys in automotive and biomedical engineering.
