Abstract: In the present study, magnesium-based composites were fabricated with three different sizes (ranging from nanometer to micrometer scale) of 1.1 vol.% Al2O3 particulates reinforcement using disintegrated melt deposition technique. Microstructural characterization of the materials revealed reasonably uniform distribution of Al2O3 reinforcement with good interfacial integrity, significant grain refinement, and the presence of minimal porosity. Mechanical properties characterization revealed that the incorporation of nano and submicron size Al2O3 particulates in magnesium matrix led to a simultaneous increase in hardness, 0.2% yield strength, UTS, and ductility of pure magnesium. The results further revealed that the 0.2% yield strength, UTS, and ductility combination of the magnesium containing nano and submicron size Al2O3 remained much higher when compared to high strength magnesium alloy AZ91 reinforced with much higher amount of micron size SiC particulates. An attempt is made in the present study to correlate the effect of different length scales of Al2O3 particulates on the microstructural and mechanical properties of magnesium. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
