These proceedings provide an overview of magnesium production technology, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and alloy development. Co-sponsored with TMS by the Magnesium Association, the symposium was divided into several sessions: Electrolytic technology, thermal reduction/environmental, automotive issues and recycling, alloy development/corrosion, solidification, creep properties/heat treating effects, physical/mechanical properties, wrought alloys/thixmolding. A collection of papers from the 2000 TMS Annual Meeting a Exhibition, held in Nashville, Tennessee, March 12-March 15, 2000.... where Mercedes used magnesium die castings in the integrated seat structure with a threepoint safety beltinthe SL Roadster. ... and semisolid metal casting) lowcost coatings Powertrain automatic transmission caseengine block crankcase oil pan starter ... However, the extremely high cost and the potential corrosion problems of magnesium wheels prevent their use in high volume vehicle production.
