Special Issue "Light Weight Alloys: Processing, Properties and Their Applications"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018)
Prof. Dr. Maurizio Vedani
Light metallic alloys are continuously gaining growing interest for a wide number of applications owing to energy saving and environmental sustainability issues, as well as good processability for the easy shaping of parts and biocompatibility for medical applications (especially for Ti and Mg).
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight recent innovations introduced in the fields of light alloys considering the perspectives of new materials and related processing routes and of new fields of applications and design strategies in these sectors.
