Scope Development and application of new lightweight alloys becomes increasingly important considering the potentials of reduced manufacturing cost, improved efficiency, and environmental benefits that these alloys are offering. The range of possible application of light metal alloys is continuously expanding and includes many applications that have been traditionally challenging (eg., automotive and marine powertrains, aerospace structural and jet engine components, etc.), considering potentially harsh service environments. Considerations of recyclability, wear and corrosion resistance, mechanical strength at elevated temperatures, low creep and long lifetime of these alloys in targeted service application become the prime focus of many development efforts. A combination of traditional and one-off custom-designed characterization techniques are being used for “fitness-for-service” testing with various degree of success. This symposium will present a selection of presentations on the studies aimed at addressing the above issues from the perspectives of practical applications and fundamental theory.
