Light metals and alloys possess high strength-to-weight ratios and low density. As a result, they have become increasingly critical in the transportation manufacturing sectors, including aircraft, automobile, heavy truck, rail, ship and defence manufacturing industries. Lighter vehicles that are designed for consumers, as well as the industry and military sectors, consume less fuel and offer a higher level of performance. In addition to carrying larger loads, lighter vehicles can travel the same distances at reduced cost and release lower levels of carbon dioxide. The recent focus on sustainability raises new challenges and opportunities for developing light metal technologies. It requires a better understanding of light metal manufacturing, processing and application.
