The relative contributions of various strengthening mechanisms such as grain-boundary strengthening, texture strengthening and solid-solution strengthening in hot-rolled Mg, Mg-12.5Li, Mg-5Tl and Mg-12.7Cd (at.%) are investigated. Grain-boundary strengthening and texture strengthening are found to be significant in magnesium, whereas in Mg-5Tl the former is more important and in Mg-12.7Cd the latter. The addition of Li, Tl or Cd causes solid-solution strengthening primarily due to differences in atomic size.
