Description: Special Report
Abstract: This report is a synopsis of the developments in the materials research program at CRREL. Focusing on studies of the low temperature behavior of materials, the report reviews these developments in three specific areas: creating a materials-property data base, researching composites and other materials and developing test facilities. Among materials, composites, being newer, have been studied at depth. Temperature and strain rate have been considered critical in influencing any material's durability; therefore, facilities were developed to provide precise control of these parameters. The program aims to meet the crucial need for designing structures and equipment using materials specifically adapted for cold regions and low-temperature applications.
