Hardening mechanism in a mg 8.5 wt % al alloy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The mechanical properties and the fracture behaviour of Mg A1 alloys with discontinuous precipitation has been investigated. It is shown that this alloy presents a combination of composite hardening for the flow stress and of a modified Hall Petch hardening for the yield stress by lamellaes and Orowan hardening for globulae.
