Summary

Alloy development work is now underway therefore as part of an international project the structure, composition and initial interim results of which have already been described [1]. The goals of this project can be defined as follows using conventional alloys as the terms of reference:

a) Room temperature properties at least as good as AZ91; b) Strength above 120 °C better than AZ91; c) Minimal creep rate better than AE42, d) Castability similar to AZ91; e) Corrosion similar to AZ91; f) Costs similar to AZ91 (no more than 20 % higher).
