Summary

It is now well established [4] that the creep of metal matrix composites is controlled by the rate of flow within the matrix alloys. Therefore, the creep resistant precipitate strengthened magnesium QE22 alloy was selected for further attempt to clarify the creep strengthening mechanisms in short fiber reinforced magnesium alloys. This work reports the experimental results obtained in an investigation of the high temperature creep properties of a fiber-reinforced QE22 matrix composite and its matrix alloy.
