The global carbon emission reduction and special application requires high performance Aluminium/Magnesium based lightweight alloys in industry, and the performance of the currently available commercial alloys can′t fully meet the requirement. In this presentation, the fundamental and development of high strength and high ductility gravity cast and die cast aluminium alloys and composites are introduced, the challenge and development of advanced die cast magnesium alloys working at elevated temperatures are reported, the research advances in fundamental liquid metal structure by researchers from Groupe de Physique des Matériaux (GPM) for the understanding and advising of industrial alloy development are shared, and the future of the development and manufacturing of advanced engineering alloys are prospected.
