Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnesium is the metal for the 21st century. Mg-alloys are being considered as one of the most versatile material choices amongst the structural materials that exhibit both energy efficiency and environmental benefits. Mg-based materials (alloys and composites) have enormous and unlimited potential to replace aluminium, steel and structural plastics in diverse industrial and commercial sectors such as automotive, aviation, defense, biomedical, sporting equipments, consumer electronics, etc. To support such huge demands, the need for the day is to improve manufacturing technologies, and R&D of new Mg-based materials with superior properties.

Recently, magnesium technology has taken a great leap towards catering to futuristic applications with the advent of high performance Mg-based materials such as Mg-nanocomposites and Mg-nanocrystalline/bulk amorphous materials (Mg-BMG), which are produced using unique processing methods. In these new materials, exceptional properties have been achieved that otherwise would have been unattainable in conventional alloys.  Concerted research efforts are being made to understand their material characteristics under various loading/operating conditions using advanced characterization tools.

The aim of this Special Issue on ‘Magnesium Technology’ is to present the state-of-the-art research trends that highlight the advancement in Mg-materials processing, novel Mg-based materials development, insight into deformation processes using experimental investigations and theoretical simulation/modeling.  Contributions related to advantage of Mg-materials in terms of recyclability/fuel/cost/energy savings and application specific research works are encouraged.
