The original research proposal incorporated five principal topics a The martensitic transformation in rapidly quenched samples morphology, crystallography, mechanical properties b Investigation on metallic glasses density, TEM, crystallization c Transformations in and strength of non- ferrous metastable alloys age-hardening, grain-size effects d Rapidly quenched tool steels hardening, TEM and e Diffusion in metallic glasses. We have made significant advances in all of these fields and subfields except for age-hardening in rapidly quenched alloys, and, under heading b, went well beyond our original brief in a detailed study of thermal relaxation in glasses.
