Summary

In 2001 six Fraunhofer Institutes have formed a strategic alliance »Magnesium Light Weight Construction« (Figure 1). In this alliance different competences of the partners in fabrication and technology i.e. casting, forming and joining as well as in design and assessment concerning fatigue strength, corrosion, thermomechanics, creep and misuse are concentrated; they are specifically extended and are jointly offered to the industry to support development processes. For this the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft is funding the alliance for three years.
