The focus of this book is the study of the physical and mechanical metallurgy of aluminum alloys produced by processing methods. It addresses progress in research, development, testing and application of aluminum sheet, plate, extrusions, forgings, and other products in end uses. Those applications include transportation, such as automotive, aerospace and marine, packaging and other key areas.

A collection of papers from the 2007 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition held in Orlando, Florida, February 25 -- March 1, 2007.
