Yan, C., Ye, L., Yan, L., Lu, L., & Lai, M.O. (2005) Synthesis and mechanical properties of nanostructured Mg-Al-Nd alloys. Advanced Materials Research, 9, pp. 93-100.
In this work, nanostructured Mg-Al-Nd alloys were successfully fabricated using mechanical alloying method. Phase structures of the milled powders and the extruded rods were examined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and the microstructures were observed using a transmission electron microscope (TEM). The element distributions were also examined by an energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) system. The mechanical properties were estimated using tensile and impact tests. The fracture surfaces of the tensile and impact specimens were observed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results showed that the grain size of the Mg-Al-Nd alloys could be reduced to below 100 nm after 20~30 hours milling. The effects of alloy composition and processing conditions on strength and ductility were analyzed. The possible mechanisms of plastic deformation in these alloys were also proposed.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
