Abstract : This study is a collection of articles assessing significant Soviet achievements in materials science. It reviews Soviet efforts for relating the composition, structure, and processing of materials to their properties and uses. The topics selected for coverage include: key developments in Soviet metallurgy, fracture analysis of materials, research efforts in titanium coatings, composite materials developments, 'glue welding' technology, and developments in optical window materials. Data for the reports were obtained from open source scientific and technical literature dating from 1968. Because of the varying nature of the subjects covered, the articles are written as independent sections with a summary, discussion section, and bibliography.
