How to Increase the use of Magnesium in Aerospace Applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Magnesium is a very attractive structural metal because of its low density. However, the corrosion behavior, particularly galvanic corrosion characteristics, negates use in demanding aerospace applications. This paper review the "political" hurdles which must be overcome to increase magnesium use in aerospace components; particularly the criticality of getting magnesium into Military Handbook 5.
