Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory Materials Reliability: 1999 Programs and Accomplishments
F R. Fickett, Thomas A. Siewert
This document describes the 1999 Programs and Accomplishments of the Materials Reliability Division, Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory. The Materials Reliability Division addresses reliability issues across the full range of the national infrastructure, from our previous focus on bridges, railroads, nuclear reactors, and pipelines, to the current focus on materials and related packaging issues in microelectronics, photonics, and other micro-scale structures. In each arena, the Division determines critical materials properties of structures, develops advanced measurement and modeling methods for evaluating failure modes and mechanisms, investigates the basic physics and materials science of failure, and works with appropriate industries to develop solutions leading to enhanced reliability of their products.
