  • Mg-Mg17Al12 eutectic;
  • orientation relationship;
  • magnesium alloys;
  • texture;
  • microstructure


The purpose of this wok was to study the development of microstructure and crystallographic orientation relationship (COR) of directionally solidified Mg-Mg17Al12 eutectic and the influence of small strontium additions.
