Abstract:

In 1977 a tour of Japan was organized to foster scientific communications between the Office of Naval Research and the Naval Research Laboratory, and the industrial and academic materials research communities of Japan. An effort was made to visit key laboratories and industries involved in metals production steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, titanium, in transportation ships, aircraft, rail, automotive, in energy production and use oil, electric, industrial chemicals, nuclear and chemical energy and in construction off-shore platforms, oil and gas pipelines, buildings, machinery. The universities visited were chosen on the basis of research interests, available contacts, and prominence in materials research. The results of the tour are given in this report. Author
