Summary

The following paper presents the present data generation for the die cast materials AZ 91 HP (GD-MgA19Zn1), AM 50 HP (GD-MgA15Mn) and AM 20 HP (GD-MgA12Mn) and compares them with wrought steels, cast nodular iron and cast aluminium alloys. This investigation enlarges the present data basis for fatigue applications [1, 2].
