This proceedings volume from the 2001 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition covers advances made in the area of scientific understanding of technological application of lightweight alloys. Papers focus on fundamental science as well as application and concentrate on scientific advances in aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and beryllium alloys and their composites. Processing, structure-property relationship, failure mechanisms, and advanced joining themes are also discussed.
