Abstract : The Lightweight and Specialty Metals Branch (LSMB) lies within the Materials and Manufacturing Science Division of the Weapons and Materials Research Directorate of the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL). LSMB s mission is to perform the fundamental and applied research and development in metals to create transformational metallic systems to enable battlefield overmatch; and to protect and defend our country by empowering, unburdening, and safeguarding our servicemen and women. LSMB s vision is to be the leading metals research and development facility for the US Army, which is achieved by attracting and retaining world-class researchers with exceptional credentials; building the necessary infrastructure for metals research; and integrating research with Army-relevant applications to enable game-changing, competitive capability. LSMB s strategy is to balance in-house capability, talent, resources, and infrastructure with external agencies/facilities to drive foundational materials research that meets the needs of the US Army. This report is a summary of published research within FY14 for LSMB.
