A general review of recent worldwide developments in the measurement of properties of materials used in structural applications at cryogenic temperatures is given. New alloy data and testing methods, particularly relating to crack growth are discussed. The major emphasis is placed on the properties of a variety of composite materials now under consideration for various applications at low temperatures. Insulation materials and others which occasionally serve a structural purpose are also considered. An attempt is made to evaluate trends in these materials. Much of the literature in this field is contained in relatively obscure government reports and corporate publications. A brief bibliography is given as well as a guide to other sources of this literature.
