About the book

The dynamic development of industry, puts in the present structures and elements increasingly high demands on the anticipated working conditions and needs, supporting and directing the progress in the field of materials engineering favors the production and testing of new materials. With the current demand for light and reliable constructions, the material that is magnesium alloys is gaining importance.


Magnesium alloys, which in addition to low density (1.7 g/cm3) also have other benefits, such as good vibration damping ability, the best of all currently known construction materials, high dimensional stability, good castability, low casting shrinkage, low density and high strength in relation to low weight, the ability to use on machine parts working at a temperature of up to 300 ° C and the ease of recycling, thus enabling the obtaining of secondary alloys very similar quality to the original material, in order to replace them with newly formed Mg alloys, in constructions less responsible.

Magnesium and its alloys until the first half of the last century were produced properly only for military purposes. In the civilian industry, due to the complex manufacturing process and high production costs, despite better mechanical properties, they could not compete with significantly cheaper construction materials. Currently, thanks to the advances made in the field of magnesium alloys technology (alloys obtained by cooling at high speeds - Rapid Solidification Processing, magnesium-based composites - MMCs - Metal-Matrix Composites, solid-state casting, remolding, tiksomolding and thixopressing), shaping , heat treatment, technological improvements and prevention from corrosion, are increasingly used in many areas of life.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

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, copy-editing 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.
