This paper is an effort to bring up to date a portion of the material presented six years ago at a Conference at the Carnegie Institute of Technology and published as Chapter 3, under the same title, of the book “The Science of Engineering Materials,” edited by J. E. Goldman and published by John Wiley in 1957. The material presented here is necessarily highly selective as well as condensed, and is intended to serve as illustrative examples rather than as a comprehensive review. The interested reader is referred to a forthcoming study entitled “Perspectives in Materials Research,” prepared by a series of panels under the auspices of the National Research Council and to be published by the Government Printing Office. These studies will give a comprehensive view of the status of our theoretical understanding over a wide range of aspects of materials science.
