The Engineering Alloys Division concerns itself with the improvement of traditional materials. New ideas, methods and technologies are being developed based on a thorough understanding of the composition-processing-microstructure-properties relationship, and are being applied to improve both mechanical and functional properties of these alloys, with a view to increasing their robustness and extending their application. Current emphases include computation of fundamental properties of transition metals and intermetallic compounds, alloying theory and materials design, alloys for biomedical and multifunctional use, technical basis of single crystal growth  as well as the deformation behaviour of alloys with unusual elastic properties.
