Materials for Transportation Technology EUROMAT - Volume 1 Edited by P.-J. Winkler Engineering progress essentially depends on the availability and the intelligent use of materials. For many key industry areas, Europe constitutes a premier place for the development of new materials and their applications. EUROMAT ’99, the biannual meeting of the Federation of European Materials Societies is the most comprehensive European event to demonstrate the wideranging interdisciplinary use of materials. A selection of the best papers presented here have been united in this 13-volume set, thus providing a survey of the latest developments in research and application in the entire field of engineering materials and advanced production technologies. Light design, high safety and comfort, and environmental compatibility are the requirements which influence the use of materials in automobiles. In the aerospace industry, there is today a strong necessity to substantially reduce development time and costs. Rail vehicles and ships are characterized by extremely long lifetime and high mileages. The achievement of these different objectives relies on the availability of novel or improved materials and related processes.
