Abstract

Solidified structure and mechanical properties of Mg97Y2Cu1 alloy reinforced by long period ordered structure with 0-0.3%wt Sr addition were investigated. The results indicate that the addition of Sr ranging from 0.1% to 0.2%, solidified structure of the alloy refines and homogenizes gradually. When the Sr addition increases to 0.3%, the alloy is over-modified. Mg17Sr2 phase forms in the alloy with the addition of 0.2% and 0.3% Sr. With the increase of Sr addition, supercooling degree and mechanical properties of the alloy increases firstly, and then decreases. After adding 0.2% Sr to the alloy, the supercooling degree increases 6.7 °C in max. Mechanical properties of the alloy with 0.2% Sr addition is the best, the tensile strength and elongation of the alloy reach 215 MPa and 9.19%, which are increased by up to 24% and 58%, respectively, compared with the alloy without Sr addition.
