Abstract

This study elucidates about the development and characterization of novel magnesium (Mg) materials containing amorphous Copper-Titanium based (Cu50Ti50) alloy particles. It involves the incorporation of Cu50Ti50 amorphous alloy powder (prepared using high-energy ball milling process) in pure Mg matrix using microwave sintering assisted powder metallurgy technique followed by hot extrusion. The microstructure and mechanical properties of the developed Mg/Cu50Ti50 composite were evaluated. Microstructural studies revealed the retention of amorphous structure of reinforcement, its uniform distribution in Mg-matrix without interfacial reaction products. Mechanical properties under indentation loads indicated hardness improvement due to amorphous Cu50Ti50 particle addition. Under compression loads, the developed composites exhibited enhanced strength with negligible change in ductility. The observed mechanical properties are discussed using the process-structure- property relationship.
