Overview of Current International Magnesium Research and Recent CAST CRC Developments
This paper provides an overview of the key areas of magnesium research and development being undertaken internationally and consideration of the future challenges confronting the further implementation of magnesium components. This paper will also include a description of some of the technologies that the CAST Cooperative Research Centre has developed and licensed for commercialisation which address some of the future challenges. There will also be a brief overview of the extent of Australia’s commitment to magnesium alloy research through the CAST CRC, the Centre of Excellence for Design in Light Metals and the CSIRO including their Light Metals Flagship program.
