Summary The energy absorbed by magnesium alloys (high-pressure die-cast (HPDC) AM20, AM50, AM60, and extruded AZ31) in a buckling test was significantly greater than the aluminum alloy 6061 T6 and particularly mild steel of a similar weight, but was less than that of the aluminum alloy and steel for the same thickness (Figure 6).26 This indicates that mass savings can be achieved by the substitution with magnesium alloys to achieve similar energy-absorbing characteristics.
