Summary

This work aims to experimental evaluation of the creep behavior of the Mg-alloys AE42 and AZ91 reinforced with carbon short fibers (23 vol. %C) compared with the matrix alloys in terms of the load carrying capacity, creep life and creep strain. Determination of the dominant creep deformation mechanism has also a significant attention in this work. Furthermore, the anisotropic creep deformation on loading either parallel or normal to the reinforced plane due to the fibers distribution will be explored to show how much these short fibers could improve the creep resistance in a specific direction.
