New light and strong magnesium alloy developed by researchers



A method to create stronger and lighter magnesium alloys was developed by a group of researchers from Monash University, Australia.

Currently magnesium alloys cannot be used in certain fields, in particular those that require a thermomechanical application, because they are often subject to deformation. Precisely for this reason, this material cannot be used in place of steel despite being resistant and light.

The new technique developed by the engineers of the Australian university keeps the typical characteristics of magnesium intact, while improving the structural integrity and thus ensuring that it can be used, for example, also in the aerospace industry or in the automotive industry.

The study, published in Nature Communications, describes the method used by researchers which involves the use of an X-ray mapping.

According to Jian-Feng Nie, lead author of the study, this light magnesium has a huge potential especially for those applications with low energy consumption and environmentally friendly.

The alloy, in addition to magnesium, involves the use of neodymium and silver.

As I have always loved to read about what's going on in the world of science, I started Carroll News Online in late-2018 with the aim of building up a great resource for people like me who just want to read about the latest research in clear and concise English, without all of the annoying ads and popups. Today, I spend a few hours per week on Carroll News Online and continue to bring on new contributors. In my spare time, outside of working on my business and this publication, I also enjoy jogging, bridge and hiking.
