: ASM Specialty Handbook: Magnesium and Magnesium Alloys (): M. M. Avedesian, M. M. Avedesian, Hugh Baker: BooksFormat: Hardcover. About this book The need for light-weight materials, especially in the automobile industry, created renewed interest in innovative applications of magnesium materials. This demand has resulted in increased research and development activity in companies and research institutes in order to achieve an improved property profile and better choice of alloy systems. Magnesium alloys—and the effects of the alloying elements, such as aluminum, lithium, copper, nickel, and silicon The properties of magnesium-based composites—and the effects of different types (metallic, ceramic, interconnected, and intermetallic) of reinforcements of varying length (from micron scale to nanometric length). Beginning with an introduction to the primary production of magnesium, the book goes on to discuss physical metallurgy of magnesium and thermodynamic properties of magnesium alloys. Further chapters focus on understanding precipitation processes of magnesium alloys, alloying behaviour of magnesium, and alloy design.

Book Description. Magnesium and Its Alloys: Technology and Applications covers a wide scope of topics related to magnesium science and engineering, from manufacturing and production to finishing and applications. This handbook contains thirteen chapters, each contributed by experts in their respective fields, and presents a broad spectrum of new information on pure magnesium, magnesium alloys. Magnesium uses; Magnesium products; Magnesium is the lightest of all light metal alloys and therefore is an excellent choice for engineering applications when weight is a critical design element. It is strong, has good heat dissipation, good damping and is readily available. Its properties make it easy to weld, forge, cast or machine. of magnesium alloys is usually a prime reason for considering these materials in engineering designs. High stiffness-to-weight, castability, machinability, and excellent damping are desir-able properties of magnesium alloys that factor into the material selection process. The unique-ness of the magnesium alloys is illustrated in. Magnesium, an alternative to aluminum, is used as a primary alloy for an increasing number of laptop designs. It’s lighter by volume than aluminum by approximately 30% (it’s actually the lightest structurally-used metal in the world), while having a greater strength-to-weight ratio. This allows magnesium alloy electronics bodies to be Author: Michael Crider.
