The Age-Hardening Of Aluminum With Mgzn2, Sidney E. Worthen May 1940

The Age-Hardening Of Aluminum With Mgzn2, Sidney E. Worthen

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the age-hardening of aluminum with magnesium and zinc in such proportions as to conform to the compound MgZn2.

Because of a lack of time and proper equipment, the only property investigated was the hardness as indicated by the Rockwell Superficial Hardness Tester.


The Age-Hardening Of Magnesium With Aluminum And Zinc, K. Deatley Loughridge May 1940

The Age-Hardening Of Magnesium With Aluminum And Zinc, K. Deatley Loughridge

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Magnesium is one of the most active elements and forms oxides, nitrides, and carbides, but not hydrides. Due to its activity, low melting point, low strength when unalloyed, and the difficulty with which it is worked, magnesium has not been and is not at present well developed.
