Summary

The reason semi-solid casting of magnesium is relatively unknown is the lack of a “standard” feedstock material and sufficient material property data.

Two different alloys were selected from two different feedstock routes for the production of components by SSC to provide specimens for static and dynamic mechanical testing.
