Abstract : Report summarizes meetings with Professor Z. Maekawa of the Kyoto Institute of Technology, Professors Masuharu Yamaguchi and Yasuharu Shirai of the Department of Metal Science and Technology of the University of Kyoto, and Professors Mikio Takano, Teruya Shinjo of the Institute for Chemical Research, University of Kyoto. Prof Maekawa is well known in Japan in the field of polymer science, especially in Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP). He is the Chairman of the 95 Japan SAMPE International Conference and Exhibition. Prof Maekawa expressed an interest in pursuing some kind of support from AOARD. Prof Yamaguchi has conducted very important basic research on the deformation of lamellar gamma titanium-aluminide alloys. This work has led to some interesting concepts for the development of DS gamma alloys for turbine engine applications. Prof Takano, an expert in the field of high temperature superconductors, requested support to bring a colleague from AT&T laboratories to work with him at the Univ of Kyoto for several months. jg
