Summary

Complex MgScGd(Y)Mn alloys were squeeze cast in order to study the combined beneficial influence of scandium, manganese and gadolinium or yttrium on creep resistance and mechanical properties. The development of microstructure was investigated and correlated with the relevant mechanical properties.
