About this Book

The need for light-weight materials, especially in the automobile industry, created renewed interest in innovative applications of magnesium materials. This demand has resulted in increased research and development activity in companies and research institutes in order to achieve an improved property profile and better choice of alloy systems.
Here, development trends and application potential in different fields like the automotive industry and communication technology are discussed in an interdisciplinary framework.
