Advances in Wrought Magnesium Alloys
Fundamentals of Processing, Properties and Applications
- Colleen Bettles, Monash University
- Matthew Barnett, Deakin University, Australia
After an introductory overview of current developments in wrought magnesium alloys, part one reviews fundamental aspects of deformation behaviour. These chapters are the building blocks for the optimisation of processing steps covered in part two, which discusses casting, extrusion, rolling and forging technologies. The concluding chapters cover applications of wrought magnesium alloys in automotive and biomedical engineering.
With its distinguished editors, and drawing on the work of leading experts in the field, Advances in wrought magnesium alloys is a standard reference for those researching, manufacturing and using these alloys.
Practitioners in magnesium alloy material science and those working in the technology and application/manufacturing fields.
