Magnesium alloys have, in recent years, been recognized as highly promising biodegradable materials, especially for vascular stent applications. Forming of magnesium alloys into high-precision thin-wall tubes has however presented a technological barrier in the fabrication of vascular stents, because of the poor workability of magnesium at room...

In this article, a new relationship for the calculation of the Zener drag pressure is described in which the effect of the size distribution of nanoscale dispersed particles is taken into account, in addition to particle radius and volume fraction, which have been incorporated in the existing relationships. Microstructural observations indicated...

In this study, bioactive glass (BG, 45S5) particles were added to a biodegradable magnesium alloy(ZK30) through a semi-solid high-pressure casting process in order to improve the surface biocompatibility of the biomaterial and potentially its bioactivity. The observation of the as-cast microstructures of ZK30-BG composites indicated homogeneous...

Zinc and zirconium were selected as the alloying elements in biodegradable magnesium alloys, considering their strengthening effect and good biocompatibility. The degradation rate, hydrogen evolution, ion release, surface layer and in vitro cytotoxicity of two Mg–Zn–Zr alloys, i.e. ZK30 and ZK60, and a WE-type alloy (Mg–Y–RE–Zr) were...

This research concerns the effect of homogenization treatment on the electrical resistivity of AA7020 aluminum alloy variants with different Zr and Cr contents. Small changes in the Zr and Cr contents of the as-cast alloy increase the electrical resistivity significantly. After employing various homogenization treatments, the electrical...

Appropriate specification of the frictional boundary condition for the finite-element (FE) simulation of metal-forming processes is of great importance to the trustworthiness of the results. The research reported in this communication aimed at understanding the interfacial contact between aluminium and steel at elevated temperatures and...

The presence of large constitutive particles formed during solidification decreases the strength and hot workability of aluminum alloys especially when they are located in the grain boundary (GB) regions. Therefore, the evolution of these phases is a major issue in the homogenization process of these alloys. There is a lack of information on the...

The commonly used hyperbolic sine constitutive equation for metal forming at elevated temperatures, with no strain incorporated, is in principle applicable only to deformation in the steady state. However, the actual deformation processes applied to magnesium alloys are mostly in the non-steady state. In the present research, the results of hot...
