Contents

The lecture „Metallic Lightweight Materials” addresses the important alloys used for lightweight constructions, whereby the alloys based on titanium, aluminum and magnesium are focused. On basis of titanium and aluminum alloys, the potential as well as the limits of additive manufacturing for lightweight design will be discussed. Additionally, advanced lightweight conceptions, i.e., metallic foams, particle reinforced metal matrix and metal fiber reinforced composites will be presented. Moreover, selected and current industrial examples of lightweight constructions will be shown. An overview of the content of the lecture is given in the following:
  • Significance of lightweight metals and lightweight constructions as well as their selection requirements
  • Aluminum and aluminum alloys
  • Titanium and titanium alloys
  • Magnesium and magnesium alloys
  • Potential and limits of additive manufacturing for lightweight design
  • Lightweight design based on steel as material
  • Metallic foams
  • Metal fiber laminates

Competencies / intended learning achievements

In this lecture the students will gain a sound knowledge of:
  • Metallic materials and their application in lightweight design
  • Relevant alloy and microstructure modifications of metallic materials used for lightweight design
  • Production processes as well as post-processing of metallic lightweight materials
  • Potentials as well as limits of lightweight design based on metallic materials
  • Selection requirements for metallic lightweight materials

Consequently, the lecture enable the students to autonomously elaborate designs for metallic lightweight constrcutions. Moreover, they will be able to compare and rate different material concepts for application in lightweight design.
