    Machining of Magnesium and Magnesium Alloys

    Published: 1990

    MAGNESIUM, with a nominal alloy density of only 1.8 g/cm3 (0.065 lb/in.3), is considered to be the lightest structural metal. It is also one of the easiest metals to machine. Magnesium is often chosen because of its light weight, but its excellent machinability is a valuable advantage when a large amount of machining must be done.

    Authors: J.R. Davis, Editor

    Magnesium and magnesium alloys have been employed in a wide variety of structural applications because of their favorable combination of tensile strength 160 to 365 MPa, or 23 to 53 ksi), elastic modulus (45 GPa, or 6.5 ├Ś 106 psi), and low density (1.74 g/cm3, which is the lowest density of all structural metals).

    Corrosion of Magnesium and Magnesium-Base Alloys

    Published: 2005
    Authors: Revised by Barbara A. Shaw and Ryan C. Wolfe, Pennsylvania State University

    LOW DENSITY and high strength-to-weight ratio are usually the prime reasons for specifying the use of magnesium alloys in engineering designs. High stiffness-to-weight ratios, good castability, high thermal and electrical conductivity, and high damping capacity of magnesium alloys are also attractive properties.

    Authors: F.C. Campbell, Editor

    Magnesium has the lowest density (1.738 g/cm3, or 0.063 lb/in.3) of the structural metals, with a density of approximately 2/3 that of aluminum and 1/4 that of steel. Although magnesium alloys have only moderate tensile strengths, in the range of 140 to 345 MPa (20 to 50 ksi), and a modulus of elasticity of only 45 GPa (6.

    Corrosion Resistance of Magnesium and Magnesium Alloys

    Published: December 01, 1998
    Authors: J.R. Davis, Editor

    The corrosion resistance of a magnesium or a magnesium alloy part depends on many of the same factors that are critical to other metals. However, because of the electrochemical activity of magnesium, the relative importance of some factors is greatly amplified.
