Summary

Creep resistant magnesium alloys are candidate materials for automotive powertrain applications. Since the 90's, a number of new creep-resistant magnesium alloy systems have been investigated and developed. These are for the most part based on rare-earth, alkaline earth, and silicon additions. This paper gives an overview of creep resistance in magnesium and a review of creep resistant magnesium alloys for power-train applications.
