|Issue Date:||15-Feb-2005||Citation:||Hassan, S.F., Gupta, M. (2005-02-15). Development of high performance magnesium nano-composites using nano-Al2O3 as reinforcement. Materials Science and Engineering A 392 (1-2) : 163-168.

Microstructural characterization of the materials revealed reasonably uniform distribution of nano-size Al2O3 reinforcement and presence of minimal porosity. Mechanical properties characterization revealed that the presence of nano-Al2O3 particulates as reinforcement lead to a simultaneous increase in hardness, elastic modulus, 0.2% yield strength, UTS and ductility of pure magnesium. The results revealed that the 0.2% yield strength, UTS and ductility combination of the magnesium nano-composites containing 0.66 and 1.11 vol% of alumina remained higher when compared to high strength magnesium alloy AZ91 reinforced with much higher amount of micrometer size SiC particulates. An attempt is made in the present study to correlate the effect of presence of nano-Al2O3 as reinforcement and its increasing amount with the microstructural and mechanical properties of magnesium. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
