Summary

Short-fiber strengthening of magnesium alloys is undertaken to improve properties such as wear resistance, elastic modulus, compression strength and creep resistance. The aim of this work is to study the behavior of short-fiber and hybrid-reinforced magnesium alloys under dynamic compression load and to evaluate their properties at elevated temperature. Three magnesium alloys, AZ91, QE22 and WE54, were used as matrix material.
