In recent years, automotive, marine, transportation, and aerospace sectors have demand for optimization of product design for lighter and high-performance materials. The need for weight reduction in such industries is to improve the fuel economy, increasing the capacity of payload, and meet the standards according to the policies of greenhouse gas emissions. The most effective way to achieve the goal of weight reduction without affecting the design performance is to use more advanced light materials. A large diversification of engineering light materials including aluminum, magnesium, and titanium alloys are available in the market. Considering its high strength to weight ratio and corrosive resistance, aluminum alloys are used widely for applications in the aerospace, transport, ship-building, and marine industries.
