The Corrosion of Magnesium and of the Magnesium Aluminum Alloys Containing Manganese

Description: "The extensive use of magnesium and its alloys in aircraft has been seriously handicapped by the uncertainties surrounding their resistance to corrosion. This problem has been given intense study by the American Magnesium Corporation and at the request of the Subcommittee on Materials for Aircraft of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics this report was prepared on the corrosion of magnesium" (p. 419).

The Effect of Magnesium Particles of Various Equivalent Diameters on Some Physical Properties of Petrolatum-Stabilized Magnesium-Hydrocarbon Slurries

Description: Memorandum presenting the effect of magnesium particles of various equivalent diameters on the apparent viscosity, sedimentation ratio, and redispresibility of petroleum-stabilized magnesium-JP-4 slurries. Powders of the following equivalent diameters were investigated: 2.8, 3.8, 7.2, 9.3, 12.0, and 14.8 microns. An analysis of the experimental error and reproducibility of values of apparent viscosity, sedimentation ratio, and redispersibility of the slurries was also made.

Study of the physical properties of petrolatum-stabilized magnesium-hydrocarbon slurry fuels

Description: Magnesium-hydrocarbon slurries containing a moderate proportion of petrolatum have physical properties such that they offer promise as experimental aircraft fuels. The settling of the magnesium is greatly retarded by the petrolatum, and the slurries can easily be remixed to their original condition after storage. Successive batches which have closely similar properties can be prepared readily. The apparent viscosity of these slurries increased rapidly with increasing magnesium concentration, with increasing petrolatum concentration, and with decreasing temperature. As the apparent viscosity increased, the extent of settling and the ease of remixing both decreased. Although no quantitative correlation was found between the properties of the slurry and those of the petrolatum, and no one petrolatum gave slurries which were best in all respects, one of the five petrolatum used was judged to be superior to the others.

Tensile Properties of HK31XA-H24 Magnesium-Alloy Sheet Under Rapid-Heating Conditions and Constant Elevated Temperatures

Description: "Specimens of HK31XA-H24 magnesium-alloy sheet from an experimental batch were heated to failure at nominal temperature rates from 0.2 F to 100 F per second under constant-load conditions. Rapid-heating yield and rupture stresses are presented and compared with the yield and ultimate stresses from elevated-temperature tensile stress-strain tests for 1/2-hour exposure. Linear temperature-rate parameters were used to correlate rapid-heating results by constructing master curves which can be used for predicting yield stresses and temperatures and for estimating rupture stresses and temperatures" (p. 1).

Column Strength of Extruded Magnesium Alloys AM-C58S and AM-C58S-T5

Description: "Tests have previously been made to determine the column strength of magnesium alloy AM-C58S-T5 extruded rod, but these few data were not considered a satisfactorily wide basis for establishing a general formula for the column strength of this alloy. It was therefore decided to make additional tests on a number of extruded sections of magnesium alloy AM-C58S-T5 with some tests on AM-C58S for comparison" (p. 1).

Effect of surface-active additives on physical properties of slurries of vapor-process magnesium

Description: The presence of 3 to 5 percent surface-active additive gave the lowest Brookfield apparent viscosity, plastic viscosity, and yield value that were obtained for slurry fuels containing approximately 50 percent vapor-process magnesium in JP-1 fuel. The slurries settled little and were easily remixed. A polyoxyethylene dodecyl alcohol was the most effective of 13 additives tested in reducing the Brookfield apparent viscosity and the yield value of the slurry. The seven most effective additives all had a hydroxyl group plus an ester or polyoxethylene group in the molecule. The densities of some of the slurries were measured.

Design considerations of a condensing system for vaporized magnesium

Description: The effect of the design characteristics of various condensing chambers on magnesium build-up at the chamber inlet was investigated. The condensing chambers are used in the vapor-condensation process for making magnesium slurries. A complete description of the various chamber designs and the procedure used in testing the chambers is given. The results are evaluated on the basis of clogging and total magnesium distilled per run. Orifice design was also considered.

Bearing tests of magnesium-alloy sheet

Description: From Summary: "Bearing tests of AM-3S, AM-52S, and AM-C57S magnesium-alloy sheet in various thicknesses and tempers were made. Bearing yield and ultimate strengths were determined and compared for various edge distances and for various ratios of loading-pin diameter to sheet thickness. Tensile strengths were determined and ratios of average bearing yield and ultimate strength to tensile strength are given."

Effect of water vapor on combustion of magnesium hydrocarbon slurry fuels in small-scale afterburner

Description: Report presenting testing of JP-3 fuel and a slurry of 60 percent powdered magnesium in JP-3 fuel in a small-scale afterburner in the presence of large quantities of water vapor. The results indicated that total temperature, combustion efficiency, and air specific impulse were improved when the magnesium slurry was used, but the improvements came at the cost of increased liquid consumption.

A Rapid Method for Determination of Water in TO₃

Description: Summary: A set of conditions is described for a ten minute determination of water in TO₃ by ignition and absorption of the evolved water in magnesium perchlorate. Complete conversion to T₃O₃ is obtained under these conditions, so that total loss on ignition and total T (plus non-volatile impurity) content may also be obtained. It has been found unnecessary to employ Cu foil to prevent interference by nitrates, which may be present with a nitrate/water ratio as high as 5, and in an amount that does not exceed 100 mg.

Column and plate compressive strengths of aircraft structural materials: Extruded 0-1HTA magnesium alloy

Description: Column and plate compressive strengths of extruded 0-1HTA magnesium alloy were determined both within and beyond the elastic range from tests of flat end H-section columns and from local instability tests of H-, Z-, and channel section columns. These tests are part of an extensive research investigation to provide data on the structural strength of various aircraft materials. The results are presented in the form of curves and charts that are suitable for use in the design and analysis of aircraft structures.

Plate compressive strength of FS-1H magnesium-alloy sheet and a maximum-strength formula for magnesium-alloy and aluminum-alloy formed sections

Description: From Summary: "The plate compressive strength of FS-1h magnesium-alloy sheet was determined from local-instability tests of formed Z-section columns. The critical compressive stress was found to correlate well with the compressive stress-strain curve for the material. The curves of average stress at maximum load plotted against calculated elastic critical strain resulted in a family of curves similar to previous results for aluminum-alloy sheet."

Description: Report presenting testing of four models of a thin magnesium fin, with the leading edge swept back 35 degrees, of a type used to stabilize the first stages of rocket-propelled multistage hypersonic models. The investigation was carried out to determine some effects of aerodynamic heating at high stagnation temperatures on the leading edges of fins and to determine the relative effectiveness of several leading-edge protective methods. The fins tested included a basic fin, a fin with a blunt leading edge, a fin with a blunt leading edge wrapped with Inconel, and a fin with a blunt leading edge made of stainless steel.

Tensile properties of AZ31A-0 magnesium-alloy sheet under rapid-heating and constant-temperature conditions

Description: Specimens of AZ31A-0 magnesium alloy sheet were heated to rupture at nominal rates of 0.2 F to 100 F per second under constant tensile load conditions. The data are presented and compared with the results of conventional tensile stress-strain tests at elevated temperatures after 1.2-hour exposure. A temperature-rate parameter was used to construct master curves from which stresses and temperatures for yield and rupture can be predicted under rapid-heating conditions. A comparison of the elevated-temperature tensile properties of AZ31A-0 and HK31XA-H24 magnesium-alloy sheet under both constant-temperature and rapid-heating conditions is included.
