Ordered intermetallics constitute a unique class of metallic materials which may be developed as new-generation materials for structural use at high temperatures in hostile environments. At present, there is a world-wide interest in intermetallics and extensive efforts have been devoted to intermetallic research and development in the US, Japan, European countries and other nations. As a result, advances have been made in all areas of intermetallic research. This NATO Advanced Workshop on ordered intermetallics reviews the recent progress and assesses the future direction of intermetallic research in the areas of electronic structure and phase stability, deformation and fracture and high-temperature properties. The book is divided into six parts: electronic structure and phase stability, deformation and dislocation structures, ductility and fracture, kinetic processes and creep behaviour, research programmes and highlights, and assessment of current research and recommendation for future work. The first four parts review the recent advances in the three focus areas.
The fifth part provides highlights of the intermetallic research under major programmes and in different institutes and countries. The last part provides a forum for the discussion of research areas for future studies.
