Porous magnesium (Mg) alloys were processed by solid state sintering from mixture of elemental metal powders and pore-filling materials, such as, carbamide (urea). The porosity of the Mg alloy was controlled by selecting different particle size of the pore-filling and volume fraction material, as well as the sintering condition, which were arranged by a factorial experimental design. The effects of their porosity and porous structure were analyzed and the mechanical strength was evaluated with compression tests.
