About the book

Titanium alloys are used in the most advanced applications and to achieve greater everyday usage in all types of products, which is undoubtedly justified in terms of comprehending recent developments in their design, processing, and properties. These alloys are recognized as critical industrial structural materials and are effectively employed in a wide range of sectors such as automotive industries, aerospace, military, energy, and biomaterials. The optimization of material properties is based on a thorough understanding of physical metallurgy, alloys design processes, deformation mechanisms, the impact of extreme environments, or the interaction of protective layers and protected alloys, and is contextualized in relation to more recent development activities. This book will address the latest developments and potential applications of this lightweight, high-strength engineering alloy in terms of its design, processing, characterization, properties, and applications. Authors are encouraged to present papers on current achievements and the most significant contributions in modern titanium alloy grades that have the potential to influence future scientific innovation and research-based advancements in all fields.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ana Javor

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
