To fulfill the great potential of intermetallic alloys for use in high temperature structural applications, it is necessary to understand on the microscopic level the mechanisms controlling their mechanical behavior, including such key phenomena as dislocation structure and mobility, crack blunting and propagation, the role and the effect of alloying additions while they have been characterized by mesoscopic length and energy scales, they are determined on the microscopic level by the electronic structure.
