Abstract : This report summarizes a visit to the Laboratory for Evaluation and Failure Prevention of Materials, Toyohashi University of Technology, on 17 Oct 94. Discussions were held regarding a research proposal from Professor Niinomi to compare the microstructure/property effects of several emerging low cost Ti alloys from Japan and the US. Prof Niinomi's laboratory is well equipped to conduct static and dynamic fracture studies on a wide range of engineering materials, from very tough and strong steel and Ti alloys, to very brittle glasses and ceramics.
