    Aside from uranium, probably no metal in the past decade has so captured the interest of the metallurgical industry as titanium. It is a good metal, with a combination of availability, lightness with strength, and corrosion resistance that makes it of particular interest to the aeronautical industry. This interest, with support from the Department of Defense, has resulted in phenomenal progress in the commercial and technical development of this relatively new metal of construction. In fact, titanium has been a worthy leader in the recent rise of a whole series of little known metals to a position of considerable commercial importance.
