Abstract : The 1987 Gordon Research Conference on Physical Metallurgy was held 20-24 July 1987 at the Tilton School, Tilton, New Hampshire. The conference topic was Intermetallic Compounds . The primary purpose of the Conference was to bring together three rather disparate groups: scientists and engineers concerned with the mechanical properties of intermetallic compounds, theoreticians interested in the problems of alloy stability and the calculation and prediction of the effects of chemical composition on alloy stability, and engineers interested in developing and producing new alloys based on intermetallic compounds for elevated temperature service. Topics include: Overview Of Strength And Ductility Of Intermetallic Compounds, Dislocation Core Structure and Slip Systems in Intermetallic Compounds, Strengthening Mechanisms in Intermetallic Compounds, Creep and Fatigue of Intermetallic Compounds, Deformation of Non-Cubic Intermetallic Compounds, Overview of Brittle-Ductile Transition Mechanisms, Mechanisms of Ductility Improvement in Lithium, Grain Boundary Accommodation of Slip, Grain Boundary Modelling, Limitations and Approximations of Electronic Structure Calculations, The Thermodynamics of Extended Defects in Intermetallic Compounds, Quantum Mechanics and Fracture.
