Development in Light Metals
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The light metals (aluminum, magnesium and titanium) are important for many applications, but are most critical for transportation where weight savings results in a plethora of benefits including reduced fuel consumption, higher speed and longer range, improved performance/handleability, etc. This applies whether we are dealing with automobiles, airplanes, space vehicles, bicycles or even submarines – witness the titanium alpha class submarine in “Hunt for Red October”.
The present volumes presents recent advances in the areas of titanium alloys, aluminum alloys and composites and magnesium alloys and, therefore, is a “must” for all collections with an interest in light metals.
