Status of the development of creep resistant magnesium materials for automotive applications

Research output: Journal contributionsConference article in journalResearchpeer-review


The present paper presents the development status of creep resistant magnesium materials. It reviews the creep deformation mechanisms of magnesium alloys. Based on these mechanisms, several effective approaches to improve the creep resistance are discussed, including alloying, microstructural control and the development of new monolithic alloys and composites.
