Titanium alloys are well known as materials for the aerospace industry already since the 1940s. Nowadays, due to their superior properties– high specific strength, excellent corrosion resistance they find increasing applications in chemical engineering, for body implants like hip replacements on in the off–shore industry, energy or automotive industry. Not to forget the increasing demand of the sports and consumer goods industry, e.g. for golf clubs, bicycles or jewelry, that make titanium a part of our everyday life already.
This handbook is an excellent reference for materials scientists and engineers that need to get more knowledge about the development, processing and application of titanium and titanium alloys. Following some introductory chapters about the fundamental materials properties of titanium the reader finds thorough descriptions of the development, processing and properties of modern titanium alloys. Furthermore, applications of titanium and its alloys in aerospace, medicine, energy and automotive technology are discussed in detail.Biographie de l'auteur :
Dr.–Ing. Christopher Leyens (1967) earned his Ph.D. from the RWTH Aachen, Germany. Having 1.5 years of research experience in the USA he is currently group leader light–metal composites at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), His current research interest is focused on the development of titanium matrix composites an on coatings for titanium– and nickel–base materials.
Dr.–Ing Manfred Peters (1950) graduated from Ruhr–University of Bochum with a Ph.D. on structure and properties of titanium alloys. After 2 years at Carnegie–Mellon University, USA, he joined DLR in 1982 where he presently is Deputy Director of the Institute of Materials Research. He has more than 30 years of research experience on light–metals and high temperature coatings.
