Abstract

The effect of Zn addition on creep strength of Mg-Y solid solution alloys at temperatures 550-650 K was analyzed. It was found that zinc suppresses the non-basal slip that operates at such temperatures. The analysis showed that the creep strength of Mg-Y solid solution alloys increases with zinc additions.
