Abstract : This publication is a compilation of papers presented at the NASA/AIAA Advanced Materials Technology Seminar held at NASA Langley Research Center on November 16-17, 1982. Collectively, these papers depict the broad scope of NASA's Materials Technology Program. Each paper provides a brief overview of a technical area in which NASA has a significant research focus. The technical areas include composites, polymer science, metallic materials (aluminum, titanium, and superalloys), materials processing technology, materials durability in the aerospace environment, ceramics, fatigue and fracture mechanics, tribology, and nondestructive evaluation (NDE). The Presentation of the NASA program in this format was selected to meet the following key seminar objectives: (1) Introduce the nonaerospace industry to the NASA Materials Technology Program. (2) Provide a convenient medium for technology exchange. (3) Provide industry with direct access to the NASA program, particularly for future follow-up activities in areas of high interest. (MM)
