||This symposium aims to bring together researchers and engineers from both academia and industry to discuss and share ideas and current advances in the field of light alloys. The symposium will have a focus on but not be limited to advances in light alloys such as high recycled content aluminiums, advanced forming processes for use with high strength light alloys for the purpose of producing automotive lightweight structures and new characterization techniques.
Papers and talks that describe studies and current advances on the following topics are invited:
Development of new light alloys in particular aluminium, magnesium, and alloys with high recycled content.
Advanced elevated temperature forming processes such as SPF, QPF, HQF in relation to light alloys.
Microstructural studies to understand evolution during forming and the relevance within industrial processes.
Related processes such as tribological studies, joining and sustainability.
Also welcome are all aspects of research, development and applications relating to light alloys.
