Many of our traditional concepts about engineering materials are rapidly becoming obsolete and being replaced by fresh ways of looking at materials. The foundation upon which the modern field of materials is now building is the view that materials are structures, whose architecture can be planned to meet specific application needs. And from this basic principle has stemmed the new image of materials as dynamic substances designed to perform the functions of mechanical and electronic components, and that can be changed or improved in their service environment.
