Abstract

A computational image analysing algorithm was developed for the separation and quantitative characterisation of different Mg17Al12 phases in the long term annealed (LTA), high pressure die cast (hpdc) AZ91 magnesium alloy such as βm (massive) and βc+d (continuous + discontinuous). The size distribut...
