- The science of materials development has progressed to a stage in which it is possible to compose a recipe for new materials. The recipe has three steps: given a desirable set of properties and material constraints, one identifies a composition and microstructure to achieve them; given a desirable composition and microstructure, one identifies a processing sequence to achieve them; given a trial alloy, one conducts analytical testing to identify its shortcomings and overcomes them. In effecting each stage of this recipe, it is usually necessary to be aware of and understand the role of the dislocations which determine material properties, define material microstructure, and control its evolution. The role of dislocations is discussed. The text contains examples of particular alloy development efforts, and suggestions for research in dislocation theory which might contribute to the solution of significant problems in materials development.
