About the Author:

After a career in industry that included serving as Principal Research Scientist and Leader of the Aircraft Materials Group at Australia's Aeronautical Research Laboratories, Dr. Polmear moved to academia where he became Chairman of the Department of Materials Science at Monash University as well as a founding member of the Department of Materials Engineering and later Deputy Vice-Chancellor. His research interests - which included precipitation hardening in aluminium alloys, development of high strength alloys for aircraft, metal fatigue and weldable light alloys - led to collaborations with laboratories and industries in Australia, Britain, Switzerland, USA and Germany. He published the first edition of Light Alloys in 1981. Dr. Polmear is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering and an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
