Due to the wide application of magnesium alloys in metals manufacturing, it is very important to employ a reliable method of joining these reactive metals together and to other alloys. Welding and joining of magnesium alloys provides a detailed review of both established and new techniques for magnesium alloy welding and their characteristics, limitations and applications. Part one covers general issues in magnesium welding and joining, such as welding materials, metallurgy and the joining of magnesium alloys to other metals such as aluminium and steel. The corrosion and protection of magnesium alloy welds are also discussed. In part two particular welding and joining techniques are reviewed, with chapters covering such topics as inert gas welding, metal inert gas welding and laser welding, as well as soldering, mechanical joining and adhesive bonding. The application of newer techniques to magnesium alloys, such as hybrid laser-arc welding, activating flux tungsten inert gas welding and friction stir, is also discussed. With its distinguished editor and expert team of contributors, Welding and joining of magnesium alloys is a comprehensive reference for producers of primary magnesium and those using magnesium alloys in the welding, automotive and other such industries, as well as academic researchers in metallurgy and materials science. Provides a detailed review of both established and new techniques for magnesium alloys welding and their characteristics, limitations and applications Both the weldability of magnesium alloys and weldability to other metals is assessed as well as the preparation required for welding featuring surface treatment Particular welding and joining technologies are explored in detail with particular chapters examining hybrid laser-arc welding, laser welding and resistance spot welding

Magnesium alloys have been attractive to designers due to their low density (two thirds that of aluminium), the sixth most abundant on earth, is ductile and the most machinable of all the metals. This has been a major factor in the widespread use of magnesium alloy castings and wrought products, powder metallurgy components, sacrificial anodes for the protection of other metals, tools. The present book, "New Features on Magnesium Alloys", gives us an overview in some special areas of magnesium alloys concerning technological applications and eco-friendly requirements. Each chapter brings us a new facet relating to the magnesium alloy application: magnesium alloys quasicrystals used to magnesium alloys reinforcement; rare earth metals as alloying components in magnesium implants for orthopaedic applications; magnesium alloys surface treatment by applying physical vapor deposition processes; casting magnesium alloys subjected to laser treatment; ductility enhancement on special magnesium alloys; welding and joining processing of magnesium alloys; transport application of magnesium and its alloys.

This volume contains the proceedings of the XIX International Colloquium on Mechanical Fatigue of Metals, held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, Portugal, 5-7 September 2018. This International Colloquium facilitated and encouraged the exchange of knowledge and experiences among the different communities involved in both basic and applied research in the field of the fatigue of metals, looking at the problem of fatigue exploring analytical and numerical simulative approaches. Fatigue damage represents one of the most important types of damage to which structural materials are subjected in normal industrial services that can finally result in a sudden and unexpected abrupt fracture. Since metal alloys are still today the most used materials in designing the majority of components and structures able to carry the highest service loads, the study of the different aspects of metals fatigue attracts permanent attention of scientists, engineers and designers.

Over the last decade, there has been substantial development of welding technologies for joining advanced alloys and composites demanded by the evolving global manufacturing sector. The evolution of these welding technologies has been substantial and finds numerous applications in engineering industries. It is driven by our desire to reverse the impact of climate change and fuel consumption in several vital sectors. This book reviews the most recent developments in welding. It is organized into three sections: “Principles of Welding and Joining Technology,” “Microstructural Evolution and Residual Stress,” and “Applications of Welding and Joining.” Chapters address such topics as stresses in welding, tribology, thin-film metallurgical manufacturing processes, and mechanical manufacturing processes, as well as recent advances in welding and novel applications of these technologies for joining different materials such as titanium, aluminum, and magnesium alloys, ceramics, and plastics.

This book will summarize research work carried out so far on dissimilar metallic material welding using friction stir welding (FSW). Joining of dissimilar alloys and materials are needed in many engineering systems and is considered quite challenging. Research in this area has shown significant benefit in terms of ease of processing, material mixing, and superior mechanical properties such as joint efficiencies. A summary of these results will be discussed along with potential guidelines for designers. Explains solid phase process and distortion of work piece Addresses dimensional stability and repeatability Addresses joint strength Covers metallurgical properties in the joint area Covers fine microstructure Introduces improved materials use (e.g., joining different thicknesses) Covers decreased fuel consumption in light weight aircraft Addresses automotive and ship applications

This report describes the characteristics and properties of existing commercial magnesium alloys and compares these relative to each other. Although this report is not intended to serve as a source of design data for magnesium alloys, it was written to provide a simple, up-to-date background of information for the technologist who is faced with the problem of materials selection and who is unfamiliar with the advantages and discaadvantages of magnesium alloys. The eight major alloying elements which are used to control the properties of magnesium are listed along with selected data illustrating the binary phase relationships which exist, between the hexagonal, close-packed structure of magnesium and each of these metals. The nomenclature system for commercial magnesium alloys is explained and compositions and available forms of the alloys are given. Property comparisons of both cast and wrought alloys are presented. There is a section in the report dealing with the joining, forming, and machining of magnesium, and a section devoted to a discussion of a number of finishing systems which have been developed for magnesium alloys.
