Metallurgy involves science and engineering of metals, from fundamental understanding of physical and chemical behavior of metals to processing of metallic components. Metals serve as important structural components as load-bearing materials and provide protection against harsh environments. This collection highlights experimental and theoretical work published in Nature Communications on the science and engineering of load-bearing materials. Explore the latest research on high entropy alloys, bulk metallic glasses, grain boundaries, phase transitions, and crystal growth, and processing, defects, and mechanical properties.
