Pure microcrystalline magnesium (µMg) was reinforced with hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) nanoparticles and was fabricated by powder metallurgy process followed by hot extrusion. For comparison pure magnesium powder was consolidated by hot extrusion too. Both materials exhibited a significant fiber texture. Mg-hBN nanocomposites (nc) and pure Mg specimens were deformed between room temperature and 300 °C under tension and compression mode. The yield strength and ultimate tensile and compression strength as well as characteristic stresses were evaluated and reported. The tensile and compressive strengths of Mg-hBN nc are quiet superior in values compared to monolithic counterpart as well as Mg alloys. The compressive yield strength of µMg was recorded as 90 MPa, whereas the Mg-hBN nancomposite shows 125 MPa at 200 °C. The tensile yield strength of µMg was computed as 67 MPa which is quite lower as compared to Mg-hBN nanocomposite’s value which was recorded as 157 MPa at 200 °C. Under tensile stress the true stress–strain curves are flat in nature, whereas the stress–strain curves observed in compression at temperatures up to 100 °C exhibited small local maxima at the onset of deformation followed by a significant work hardening.

In the accumulative roll bonding (ARB) technique, repeated stacking of material followed by conventional roll-bonding is carried out. For this process the surfaces are cleaned with ethanol and then joined together by rolling. The rolled material is then cut into two halves, again surface treated and roll-bonded. This process may be repeated several times. For the magnesium alloy AZ31 (Mg-3Al-1Zn) rolling at an elevated temperature of 400 °C is necessary for ARB because of the low plasticity of h...

Abstract Pure h-BN ceramics were processed at different sintering temperatures and hold times using ball milled nanocrystalline or amorphous h-BN powders. Increases in sintering temperature induced greater grain growth but reduced relative densities and mechanical properties. Changes in sintering hold times caused further increases in grain sizes and relative density, but had little impact on mechanical properties. The grain sizes play an important aspect of strength in h-BN ceramics. The relati...

Abstract Magnesium matrix nanocomposite (1 vol.% nano-SiCp/AZ31) sheets were successfully fabricated by hot rolling at 350 °C with per pass reduction of 15% and total reduction up to 84%. Microstructure and texture evolution of the nanocomposites during hot rolling were investigated. Twinning and associated dynamic recrystallization (TDRX) were the dominant features at the initial stage of hot rolling. With the increase of rolling passes, grains were refined gradually due to dynamic recrystalliz...

Abstract Magnesium and its alloys reinforced with nano-size reinforcements display improved mechanical properties without significant reduction in the ductility that is usually associated with the addition of micron size reinforcements, making them an attractive choice for lightweight structural applications. This paper provides a review of magnesium nanocomposites containing ceramic and metallic reinforcements synthesized using liquid based (Disintegrated Melt Deposition Technique) and solid ba...

Abstract Twin rolled cast Mg–3Al–1Zn Mg sheets were processed using equal channel angular plate extrusion (ECAPE) at 200 °C and 150 °C following different processing schemes. Grain size was effectively refined from 9 µm down to 1.9 µm, and the starting strong basal texture was weakened after multi-step processing. A crystal plasticity model was utilized to reveal the operating deformation modes in the ECAPE processed sheets under uniaxial loading at room temperature. The results show that tensio...

Abstract In the present study, new AZ51/Al 2 O 3 –2Ca magnesium nanocomposite was successfully synthesized by simultaneously adding 2 wt.% aluminum, 2 wt.% Ca and 1.5 vol.% nanosized Al 2 O 3 (50 nm) into AZ31 matrix using a disintegrated melt deposition (DMD) technique. AZ51/Al 2 O 3 nanocomposite was developed following the same processing route except adding Ca. Composite samples were then subsequently hot extruded at 400 °C and characterized. Microstructural characterization studies revealed...

In this study, magnesium composites with nano-size boron nitride (BN) particulates of varying contents were synthesized using the powder metallurgy (PM) technique incorporating microwave-assisted two-directional sintering followed by hot extrusion. The effect of nano-BN addition on the microstructural and the mechanical behavior of the developed Mg/BN composites were studied in comparison with pure Mg using the structure-property correlation. Microstructural characterization revealed uniform dis...

Abstract The effect of grain size and alloying elements on the yield strength in compression was investigated using pure magnesium and its diluted solid solution alloys (Mg–Zn and Mg–Y alloys). The yield strength in compression was closely related to the {10–12} twinning, and followed the Hall–Petch relation in all the alloys. The value of σ 0 increased in the following order, Mg–Y>Mg–Zn>pure magnesium, indicating solid solution strengthening; however, the slope in the Hall–Petch relation was no...

Friction stir processing was applied to a magnesium alloy to generate various grain sizes with the same intense basal texture. Subsequent tensile deformation along two orthogonal directions by easy activation or inhibition of basal slip follows the Hall–Petch relationship between yield stress and grain size in both directions. The Hall–Petch parameters are texture dependent. Easy activation of basal slip introduces lower values, while inhibition of basal slip leads to higher values. The Hall–Pet...

In this study, first, the microstructure and mechanical properties of AZ80 magnesium alloy and SiC/AZ80 nanocomposite were compared. Then, the effects of 1, 3, and 5 passes of repeated upsetting (RU) process performed at 300 °C on the nanocomposite were investigated. According to the optical microscopy images, the average grain size in AZ80 alloy is 60.3 μm, which has decreased to 30.6 μm as a result of adding SiC nanoparticles. After the fifth pass of RU process, the average grain size reaches ...
