Abstract : This report covers the progress made in the second year of a three study on the application of rapid solidification processing (RSP) to A1 and Mg alloys. The main emphasis of this study has been on the understanding of the microstructures produced by rapid solidification. The alloy systems studies include: 1) A1 alloys for elevated temperature applications, namely A1-8Fe-2Mo with additions of Si, and 2) Mg alloys for elevated temperature applications, namely, Mg-Gd,Mg-Li,Mg-Li-Si. Keywords: Physical metallurgy; Magnesium; Lithium; Silicon; Gadolinium; Hardness; Tensile strength.
