About this Symposium
Meeting NUMIFORM 2019: The 13th International Conference on Numerical Methods in Industrial Forming Processes
Symposium S-10: Characterization, Modelling and Processing of HCP Metals
Organizer(s) Gianfranco Palumbo, Polytechnic University of Bari
Ali Arslan KAYA, University of Mugla
Scope Of the light metals, the two, Mg and Ti, constitute a couple that have not been commercialized to the extent one can envisage based on their interesting properties. Magnesium alloys has been serving humanity over a century with changing modes of attention and for a variety of applications spanning from medical, sports, and automotive to aerospace. Likewise, Ti, since early 1950s, have been a player in very crucial applications in the same fields as Mg, and found perhaps more of an established position in material inventories. Both metals, despite having strikingly low densities and high strength-to-weight ratios, seem to have been suffering from the same infertility in terms of the number of commercially used alloy systems, not to mention the features that their reactivity or hcp crystal system creates. Current status of research may be changing some of those aspects and the future of these metals. Beside the possibility of reducing the fuel consumption and green-house gas emissions in transportation as well as in aeronautical applications, they are attractive for biomedical applications. The present mini-symposium will focus on the two metals, Mg and Ti of HCP crystal system, and their alloys: scientific investigations on the microstructural evolution, developing specific tests for characterizing such alloys, modelling their plastic/superplastic behavior or investigating the manufacturing processes able to produce advanced components, preferably using a numerical/experimental approach, are all welcome.
