Abstract : This report summarizes discussions held with eight members of the newly organized Center for Advanced Aerospace Materials, which is supported by the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation. Although the majority of projects at the center do fall under the broad category of aerospace materials, some of the work is also aimed at the application of traditional aerospace materials to automotive and other applications. The largest amount of research is based on Al alloys such as the 7000 series, Al-Li alloys, and Rs Al alloys. Of note among this work is a high strength and weldable Mn-modified Al-Zn-Mg alloy which is being developed for commercialization. Other work of interest includes elemental PM-based gamma Ti-Al alloys, AlN fibers, whiskers and foams produced by SHS, and theoretical advancements in SPF. (MM)
