Abstract

The thermodynamic properties of the quaternary Mg- Al-Ca-Sr system are investigated by combining the six binary systems, i.e. the Al-Ca, Al-Mg, Al-Sr, Ca-Mg, Ca-Sr and Mg-Sr. The constructed quaternary database is used to understand the microstructures and phase relationships of the two alloys (Mg-5.7%Al- 3.1%Ca-0.15%Sr and Mg-5.0%Al-3.1%Ca-0.07%Sr). Scheil simulations and equilibrium calculations were performed for the solidification process of the alloys and compared with experimental observations.
