Microstructural development and mechanical properties in wrought Mg-Zn-RE alloys

Magnesium-zinc alloys with and without rare earth metals were examined. Particles form when rare earth metals are present and these affect the development of the internal structures in the alloys. Finer, more numerous and more uniformly distributed particles result in alloys with the best combination of high strength and ductility.
