For years, the proportion of components made of aluminum alloys continuously, which is due in large part by the increasing use in vehicles grows . For highly stressed components in the powertrain, chassis and body are made of aluminum . Duchts weight reduction have light metals significantly beeigetragne for the reduction of pollutant emissions and fuel consumption. The extraordinarily successful use of cast aluminum has been driven by the interaction of material developments , process optimization and structural design in conjunction with simulation and calculation method . By casting a virtually unlimited design freedom is possible, and functionally relevant details can be integrated in one component. A wide range of alloys enables additional individual variations of material properties for various applications - from high-strength high ductility up .
The current revised edition of this book contains important information about manufacturing processes and material properties of common aluminum alloys in a clear form . These are intended to provide both the processors and the user thought-provoking and assistance both in daily operations and for future , more innovations. The book in a handy format is equally suitable as a reference as for teaching and training purposes.
