Abstract
The high stiffness and low density of lithium-containing aluminum alloys makes them prime candidates for a number of commercial and defence aircraft applications. It is well recognized that the strong crystallographic texture developed during the processing of these alloys, and the complex precipitation resulting from their heat treatment yields a material with some unusual properties. For several years Canadian government laboratories have had programs on aluminum-lithium alloys dealing with both long term research and development to characterize these materials, and the quality assurance issues and life cycle management implications arising from their exploitation in defence systems. This workshop was intended to provide a review of the activities undertaken to date, and to foster an increasing coordination of the overall effort to maximize the technical support provided to the Canadian Forces.
