This publication addresses the latest developments and breakthroughs in all areas of science and engineering of titanium technology that aim to reduce the cost of titanium for end users. The broad areas covered include:
  • Extractive Metallurgy
  • Melting
  • Casting and Refining Practices
  • Powder Processing and Handling
  • Deformation Processing
  • Alloy Development
  • Microstructure and Property Enhancement Through Secondary Processing
  • Emphasis is given to those processes that are under development and/or emerging as well as innovative

A collection of papers from the 2007 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition held in Orlando, Florida, February 25-March 1, 2007.
