Magnesium Technology 2008 presents all aspects of magnesium production, properties and application, including primary production, alloy development, performance and the global market. This comprehensive book includes sections on wrought alloys; thermodynamics and phase transformations; casting; alloy microstructure and properties; corrosion, surface finishing and joining; creep resistant magnesium alloys; and advanced magnesium materials.

Book News Annotation:

Papers from a March 2008 meeting are presented here, in sections on primary production, wrought alloys, thermodynamics and phase transformations, casting, advanced magnesium materials, alloy microstructures and properties, corrosion and surface finishing, and creep resistant magnesium alloys. Some specific topics covered include deformation mechanisms of AZ31 magnesium alloy, elastic constants of magnesium compounds from first-principles calculations, and thermodynamic modeling of porosity formation during non- equilibrium solidification in magnesium alloy castings. Other subjects covered are direct chill casting and plastic deformation of magnesium alloys, strengthening of case Mg alloys by friction stir processing, the effect of twinning on the mechanical behavior of Mg- Zn-Y alloys, and spray coatings for improving galvanic corrosion and slide wear resistance of Mg alloys. The editor teaches materials engineering at McGill University, Canada. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
