Abstract : The use of magnesium alloys for pump castings in rocket motors is of interest because of the possible saving in weight. Mechanical properties data for cast magnesium alloy AZ91C and cast aluminum alloy 356-T6 at room temperature and -300 F are presented in this report. Cast aluminum alloy 356-T6 is being used in rocket motor pumps at the present time. (Author)
