ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jallcom.2007.11.047||Abstract:||In the present study, pure magnesium and a Mg/Y2O3 nanocomposite were microwave sintered using heating rates of 49 and 20 °C/min. Results obtained from extruded rods revealed that average hardness and strengths of both Mg and Mg/Y2O3 samples were higher when they were sintered at higher heating rate. Ductility of pure Mg, however, reduced at higher heating rate while it remained similar for Mg/Y2O3 nanocomposite. An attempt is made to correlate tensile properties with the end microstructural features of the samples sintered at two different heating rates. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
