Abstract : The ICSMA 10 conference provided an excellent snapshot of our current understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of the deformation and failure of crystalline materials. One of the more provocative papers was presented by Prof Vitek who presented a model linking brittle intergranular fracture caused by the structure of segregated grain boundaries in alloys, and the grain boundary structures in intermetallics. Several interesting papers of an empirical nature were also presented, including reviews of nano-laminated materials, high strength, ductility and stiffness quasicrystalline Al-based alloys, and a comprehensive review of superplastically formable fine-grained ceramics.
