The properties of magnesium, specifically the specific stiffness, strength and damping, can be enhanced by the addition of reinforcements such as silicon carbide particulates. This paper highlights the results of a study aimed at investigating the possible variation in overall damping property, measured using an impact based vibration method coupled with circle-fit approach, which focuses on the internal friction arising at the matrix-reinforcement particulate interfaces. The study also examines the intrinsic influence of a second reinforcing phase, which is particulate of titanium, along with particulates of silicon carbide.
