"The magnesium-zirconium system has been studied to 0.8 per cent zirconium which represents the limit of solubility of zirconium in liquid magnesium at 950°C. Alloys have been prepared by two methods of alloy additions, and the results compared. Microstructural studies have been made of the alloys in the cast, extruded, and heat-treated conditions. The limit of solid solubility has been determined on the basis of resistivity and temperature coefficient of resistivity measurements, as well as by metallographic examination, with good agreement. A secondary structure resulting from precipitation of a second phase within cored regions of the alloy has been studied by both light and electron microscopy. X-ray diffraction studies of cored regions separated from the alloy give no evidence for the existence of a compound Mg2Zr which has been previously proposed"--Abstract, page 9.
