About this book


Very light, very strong. extremely reliable -aircraft and aerospace engineers are. and have to be. very demanding partners in the materials community. The results of their research and development work is not only crucial for one special area of applications. but can also lead the way to new solutions in many other areas of advanced technology. Springer-Verlag and the undersigned editor are pleased to present in this volume. an overview of the many facets of materials science and technology which have been the objective of intensive and systematic research work during past decades in the laboratories of the German Aerospace Research Establishment. Its contents shows clearly the interrelations between goals defined by the user. fundamentals provided by the scientists and viable solutions developed by the practical engineer. The particular personal touch which has been given to this volume by its authors in dedicating it as a farewell present to Professor Wolfgang Bunk. inspiring sci­ entist and director of the DLR Intitute of Materials Research for more than 20 years. has obviously given an added value to this important publication. Surely. this truly cooperative endeavour will render a valuable service to a large interna­ tional community of interested readers. many of them having personal links to the Institute. its director and its staff.
