A critical drawback for the application of magnesium wrought alloys is the limited formability of semifinished products that arises from a strong texture formation during thermomechanical treatment. The ability of second phase particles embedded into the metal matrix to alter this texture evolution is of great interest. Therefore, the fabrication of particle modified magnesium alloys (particle

In Al-Mg alloys containing more than 3^% Mg, no secondary precipitates of the Mg2Si phase are formed due to the low solubiUty of Si in (Al) (Table 2.4). Almost all silicon is bound in eutectic Mg2Si particles as suggested by Figure 2.1b, c. 2.2. Al-Fe-^Mg PHASE DIAGRAM This phase diagram can be used to analyze the effect of iron on the phase
