AbstractMost magnesium alloys undergo creep under the service conditions of the automotive powertrain components (50- 100MPa, 175-200ºC). Texture studies on creep-tested pure Mg and Mg-1.5wt%Mn casting alloys were performed via Neutron Diffraction (ND). Analysis of the as-cast pure Mg, before creep testing indicated that there is preferred orientation with the c-axis of the HCP grains perpendicular to the growth direction of the columnar grains (and parallel to the longitudinal axis of the casting). Following compressive-creep testing (15MPa, 175ºC, 150hrs.), the maximum intensity of the texture in pure Mg dropped notably, indicating a rotation of basal-plane normals. No significant change in the maximum intensity of texture was observed in Mg-1.5%Mn samples creep tested under the same conditions. Creep tests conducted at 50MPa (which is above the yield strength of the alloys) and at 150ºC on both pure Mg and Mg-1.5%Mn samples resulted in the rotation of the basal plane normals towards the compression axis.
