Titanium and titanium alloys are used in many demanding applications in aerospace and terrestrial systems because of their excellent combination of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. However, high costs resulting from an energy-intensive extraction process and complex fabrication sequence excludes titanium alloys from many applications. This proceedings volume will address all aspects of potential cost reduction of titanium alloys, covering such segments of titanium technology as extraction, creative melting including cold-hearth approaches, near-net-shape techniques, processing and fabrication advances, high-speed machining and knowledge-based processing with emphasis on computer-aided approaches, improved process control, and creative designs. This volume will be of widespread interest to materials scientists and engineers working in the aerospace, automobile, chemical processing, medical, and consumer industries.Standard components manufactured from titanium Use of Titanium in Family Automobile Components The potential for use of titanium ... but also the effect this weight savings has on surrounding parts; the expense associated with weight savings is easier to accommodate ... 2000 Turbo charger wheel y-TiAl Mitsubishi Lancer 2001 Exhaust system Ti grade 2 General Motors Corvette Z06 2001 Wheel rimanbsp;...
