Summary A description of the key solidification steps in the formation of the as-cast microstructure of magnesium alloys is presented. The focus is on the two common magnesium alloy groups: Mg-Al alloys and Mg-Zn-rare earth alloys. The key elements described are: nucleation (including grain refinement), growth of the primary phase and the formation of the eutectic phases. In addition the effect of casting process (e.g. high-pressure diecasting and sand casting) on the outcomes from solidification are discussed. This includes consideration of the formation of banded defects during solidification in the dynamic environment of high pressure die casting.
