Abstract : The research program consists of various tasks on metallurgical synthesis, which are aimed at developing improved microstructures in metals and ceramics of interest to the Air Force. The tasks are considered 'next step' research, in that prior critical experiments have demonstrated the feasibility of a concept. The research was aimed at developing the potential usefulness of the basic concept, and to determine the circumstances under which it might be expected to operate. The tasks discussed in this report deal chiefly with research on aluminum and titanium alloys, and to a lesser extent with ceramics. (Modified author abstract)
