Ultrafine grained magnesium alloy was synthesized via mechanical milling of AZ91 chips. Mechanical property measurement revealed enhanced yield strength of 470 MPa after mechanical milling. The increase in yield strength is associated with reduction in grain size which restricts twining and dislocation gliding. The present investigation demonstrates that magnesium alloys can be cost-effectively recycled through the process of mechanical milling.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
