Magnesium, with a density of 1.74 g/cm2, is the lightest structural metal and magnesium are increasingly chosen for weight-critical applications such as in land-based transport systems. qMagnesium Technologyq substantially updates and complements existing reference sources on this key material. It assembles international contributions from seven countries covering a wide range of research programs into new alloys with the requisite property profiles, i.e., the current state of both research and technological applications of magnesium. In particular, the international team of authors covers key topics, such as: casting and wrought alloys; fabrication methods; corrosion and protection; engineering requirements and strategies, with examples from the automobile, aerospace, and consumer-goods industries, and recycling. This authoritative reference and overview addresses materials researchers as well as design engineers.By 1 985, the North American auto industry was consuming 5, 500 mt of magnesium or approximately 0.5 kg per average ... and clutch pedal support and bracket introduced by Ford Motor Company in 1982 in its Bronco and Ranger trucks, and the ...

By the end of the decade GMa#39;s use of magnesium had increased beyond Forda#39;s to 28, 000 m (or 3.8 kg per vehicle).
